City Receives Two More Private Light Rail Proposals


Today, the city received two private conceptual proposals – one from Parsons Construction Group, Inc. of Norfolk, VA, the other from American Maglev Technology of Marietta, GA — for extending The Tide light rail line to Virginia Beach.  Together with the Skanska/AECom/Shucet proposal received on April 2, this brings the total number of proposals to three.  A review team appointed by the City Manager will evaluate the proposals in preparation for a briefing to City Council on Nov. 12.  If Council elects to accept the proposals, they will be made public within 10 days of acceptance.  Council acceptance initiates a formal review process, which will take several months.
