SMART awards initial contracts for commute train, bike path | PressDemocrat.com | The Press Democrat | Santa Rosa, CA.

A San Francisco firm has been selected to write the specifications and design requirements for the trains, tracks and stations for the Sonoma-Marin commute rail system.

The firm, LTK Engineering Services, also will support SMART in its dealings with the Federal Railroad Administration and state Public Utilities Commission, which oversee railroads.

The contract is for $2 million and runs through December 2010.

The SMART board on Wednesday also approved contracts to two firms to design the pedestrian and bicycle pathway that will be alongside the 70-mile train right-of-way.
