VMR Operations and Maintenance Center Expansion
Mass. Electric Construction Co. performed the systems scope of work, including train control, communications, and power systems for the expansion of the Valley Metro’s Operations and Maintenance Center (OMC). The expansion included:
- Seven new storage tracks to increase vehicle storage capacity
- Two new tracks and a second cleaning platform constructed south of the existing cleaning platform
- Expansion of the maintenance of equipment building, including modifications or extension of the existing mezzanine, office space, inspection pits and cranes (approximately 23,000 square feet)
All improvements were accommodated within the footprint of the existing Operations and Maintenance Center; no additional property was acquired.
The expansion allows the OMC to operate and maintain a fleet of approximately 90 vehicles — 40 more than the old facility.
