The California High-Speed Rail Authority is seeking a design-build-maintain contractor to submit qualifications to bid on request for qualifications (RFQ) No. HSR 19-13.
The scope of work will include design and construction of trackwork, railway systems, electrification, as well as testing and commissioning.
