Mid-Jordan LRT Extension



The UTA Mid-Jordan extension was completed a year ahead of schedule, approximately 20 percent under budget and began revenue service August 7, 2011. RSS was responsible to design, furnish, install, and place into service the Train Control System and Highway Crossing Warning Systems for the Mid-Jordon Light Rail Transit system extension in Salt Lake City, Utah.

In 2007, RSS, Inc. was selected to participate as an integral part of the design/build team for this project. The Mid-Jordan extension is a 10.6-mile, double-track, light rail transit line with 10 new stations, 10 new interlockings and 15 highway crossings between UTA’s existing TRAX system with the terminal of the new line in the new Daybreak development. This project is constructed on an existing short line right of way. Construction operations maintained freight service throughout the project duration. The project consists of 1.2 miles of at-grade street running track and 9.5 miles of at-grade ballasted track. The project is integrated with the existing double-track, light rail transit line at Lovendahl/Sugar interlockings.
