Project Description

This project is for architectural and engineering services that will provide pre-design services, geotechnical engineering, land surveys, traffic studies, existing facilities testing and evaluation and feasibility studies. It will also include design and construction administration, inspections and project oversight. Pace intends to expand and improve its existing River Division bus garage onto newly acquired property south of the existing garage. It will be designed to accommodate storage, servicing,maintenance, and associated program areas for an additional 75 buses, 26 paratransit and 6 nonrevenue vehicles in addition to other improvements to modernize the existing facility. Once the A/E design is completed, construction will follow.
