The Central Corridor Light Rail Transit (CCLRT) also known as the METRO Green Line is an eleven-mile route that connects downtown Minneapolis and downtown St. Paul.

  • Construction Cost:  $957M
  • 18 stations
  • Opened for Service June 2014.

Construction Surveying:  EVS provided construction staking for the relocation of existing underground public utilities, Xcel Energy electrical conduits and St. Paul District Energy and District Cooling (DE/DC) hot and chilled water lines for a total of six blocks along 4th Street from Minnesota Street to Broadway Street in St. Paul in preparation for the construction of the Central Corridor Light Rail Transit (CCLRT) from Downtown Minneapolis to Downtown St. Paul.

Environmental – Final EIS and Phase I ESA: EVS staff researched and wrote sections for the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS). Sections included, ‘Safety and Security’, ‘Hazardous /Regulated Materials’ and ‘Acquisitions and Displacements/Relocations’. Other FEIS support work included the categorizing and formatting of over 900 public comments received through public testimony, email, and written letters.  Under a separate contract, EVS assisted with the Phase I ESA for the CCLRT. EVS staff performed detailed Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) file review for known contaminated sites along the corridor. EVS also provided hazardous materials site rankings and recommendations for additional Phase II ESA work for high potential sites.
