A Parsons joint venture has opened a three-floor office at the Grand Tower in Fresno as part of its involvement in the California bullet train project.
The Tutor Perini/Zachry/Parsons Joint Venture will build the initial segment of the $985 million rail transport, which will have 29 miles of track from Fresno to Madera, Parsons said Tuesday.
“The opening of the TPZP JV’s office in Fresno represents a major step toward the realization of high-speed rail in California,” said Garry Higden, Parsons group president.
The contract from the California High-Speed Rail Authority has an additional provisional sum of $53 million.
Local officials graced the open house held to mark the office opening, including Fresno Mayor Ashley Swearengin and California HSR chief executive Jeff Morales.
