These projects may include, but are not limited to pavement projects (new, extended and/or rehabilitated pavements for runway, taxiway, and apron areas), auto parking lot improvements, roadway improvements, airfield
lighting and NAVAIDs improvements, airfield fuel system improvements, airfield signage improvements, demolition of airfield improvements, aircraft hangars, utility infrastructure development and upgrades, and other similar airport related projects. The work also will include vertical construction work such as new Terminals and Concourses, rehabilitations to Terminals and Concourses, various aviation support facilities (fire stations, cargo and catering buildings, etc) with scopes of work that include foundations, steel framing, mechanical, electrical, plumbing and security systems, baggage handling systems, IT infrastructure, and building finishes.

New South End Light Rail Station

The Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS) will construct a new LRT station along the LYNX Blue Line (South Corridor) approximately mid-way between the East/West Boulevard and New Bern Stations. The new station must operate and communicate as part of the overall Lynx Blue Line. Construction will take place while the Blue Line remains in service.

The City of Charlotte completed a study in 2019 to determine the feasibility of constructing a pedestrian crossing or a new station mid-way between the East/West Boulevard and New Bern Stations. Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS) determined a new station would best serve the project area. The study indicated two potential locations for the new station, and a final station site will be determined through this contract.

The new station will be designed to the same standards as the recently constructed LYNX Blue Line Extension (BLE) stations and will have the capacity to serve up to three Light Rail Vehicles (LRVs). Construction and testing must occur with minimal disruption to LYNX Blue Line revenue service.

Violence Interruption: Cure Violence Charlotte Implementation

In 2019, more than 100 homicides occurred in Charlotte — an 80 percent increase over the previous year and the city’s highest number of homicides since the early 1990s — and hospital emergency departments treated more than 4,000 Mecklenburg County residents for assault-related injuries.

In response to the increase in violence, the City, County and partners have adopted a new public health approach to prevent violent crime.

To help address this problem, the Office of Equity, Mobility and Immigrant Integration seeks one community organization to act as the Lead Agency and implement Cure Violence Global’s violence interruption model in the priority geography of Beatties Ford Rd and Lasalle St.

CATS Rail Geometry Testing

The Charlotte Light Rail consists of over 40 miles track that includes double main track, storage tracks and yard tracks. Having a strategy for Rail Inspection is key to the success of CATS and its passengers. CATS is developing a plan that will help ensure that rail defects will not be an issue for are lines.
The purpose of Track Geometry testing on CATS Blue Line is to test several geometric parameters of the track without obstructing normal revenue operations. Some of the parameters generally measured include position, curvature, alignment of the track, smoothness, and the cross level of the rails. The testing vehicle will use a variety of sensors, measuring systems, and data management systems to create a profile of the track being inspected.
The Track Geometry Vehicle must be able to collect track geometry measurements that include gauge, curvature, cross level, super elevation, 31’ and 62’ warp, 31’ and 62’ twist, track alignment and rail profiles of both left and right running rails. All measurements collected shall meet the most current APTA track safety standards. Any defects shall be coded as defined in the CATS MOW Track Standards Manual; as well as the severity level defined in the manual.
