To date, the project field office has a team of 40+ employees from RTD and BBII. They include:

  • Project managers
  • Design leads
  • Engineers
  • Support staff

The number of field crews on the ground is growing daily, but will eventually total close to 300 personnel to get the job done.

BBII will boost the local economy during construction by utilizing 35 local subcontractors to build the Southeast Rail Extension project. These subcontractors will be responsible for things like:

  • Quality and traffic control
  • Public information
  • Dirt excavation
  • Bridge construction
  • Electrical
  • Concrete
  • Architectural fabricators and installers
  • ... much more
