Our team, Dragados USA, Inc. and Flatiron West, Inc. collectively known as DFJV, brings the necessary transportation experience to successfully complete the California High-Speed Rail Construction Package 2-3 Project (CP 2-3). The California High-Speed Rail Authority (Authority) is responsible for the planning, design, construction and operation of the first high-speed rail system in the nation. The California High-Speed Rail System will connect the mega-regions of the State; contribute to economic development and a cleaner environment; create jobs for subcontractors and small business; and preserve agricultural and protected lands.
Construction Package 2-3 is a 60-mile route located within the counties of Fresno, Tulare and Kings and the cities of Hanford, Corcoran and Allensworth. The Project requirements are construction of at-grade, aerial, and possible below grade sections of the high speed train, relocation of existing BNSF tracks for approximately 5.5 miles, possible crossing of existing BNSF railroad tracks, construction of waterway and wildlife crossings, and roadway reconstructions, relocations, and closures.
The $1.5 to $2 billion design-build contract will bring thousands of jobs to the Central Valley. The route will also provide environmental benefits, relieve roadway congestion and spur economic development.
CP 2-3 is dedicated to following and upholding the terms of the Authority’s Small Business Program. The program requires an overall 30 percent goal for small business participation with a ten percent goal for Disadvantaged Business Enterprises and three percent goal for Disabled Veteran Business Enterprises. Our team recognizes the local and specialty subcontractors as vital and productive members of the Project.
We have successfully implemented small and disadvantaged business programs that meet and exceed project goals and develop meaningful participation for local small business enterprises/disadvantaged business enterprises (SBEs/DBEs). Our team is reaching out to Small and Disadvantaged Businesses to augment its self-performance capacity and utilize local and specialty subcontractors for a variety of tasks pertaining to project controls, construction, quality control and material supply.Learn More
