The San Bernardino County Transportation Authority recently selected HNTB for the project and construction management services contract for its first-of-a-kind, emerging technology tunnel mobility solution to Ontario Airport. HNTB will work with SBCTA to procure, select, and oversee a design, build, operate and maintain – known as DBOM – developer for the project. This unique project will connect the airport with the Rancho Cucamonga station area via a 4-mile-long tunnel that moves passengers using autonomous vehicle technology.
The implementation of this project will transform the station into a multimodal regional hub. It will connect the future Brightline passenger rail service to Las Vegas via Metrolink from the City of Los Angeles, while offering services for travelers to get to Ontario Airport as well.
The project is expected to get underway in the third quarter of this year. Completion is expected within 48 months.
