The project includes M1 Conceptualtraction power, train signal and communications systems, traffic signals, street lighting, systems infrastructure, and public and private utility relocation. MRS scope includes the design, furnish, and installation of the signal, traction power and communications systems. Signal design is 90% complete and major signal and communication construction begins in June, 2016. First efforts will consist of setting TWC and communication cabinets and pulling innerduct the length of the route.
