Denver Eagle P3 Commuter Rail Line
Location: Denver, Colorado | Owner: Regional Transportation District of Denver | Contract: $1.76 billion
Fluor was the developer, an equity sponsor, and managing partner of the Design-Build Joint Venture for the DBFOM of the 36-mile rail transit Eagle Commuter Rail Network. This complex P3 project delivered an electrified railway adjacent to sections of operating rail systems. Project elements included design and construction of three separate rail lines and a commuter rail maintenance facility; rolling stock delivery of 50 new electric-powered commuter rail cars; installation and integration of infrastructure and system elements, and rolling stock; and operations and maintenance. Approximately 36,950 square yards of new bridges were constructed for this project, representing nearly five miles of track.
Maryland Purple Line
Location: Bethesda, Maryland | Owner: MDOT & MTA
Contract: $2 billion
The Purple Line project represents the most recent transit P3 project to close in the U.S. market. It is also the second P3 rail transit project in the country, following the pioneering Eagle P3 project. The 16.2-mile east-west alignment will link key economic, academic, and transit centers between Bethesda in Montgomery County and New Carrollton in Prince George’s County. Twenty-one stations are planned along the route, with platforms around 200 feet in length. This new line will provide connections to several existing transit providers and improve mobility to major economic and job centers, as well as the University of Maryland in College Park.
Phase 1 Exposition Light Rail

Fluor was responsible for the design, construction, and systems integration as part of a three-member JV for the Expo Line Phase 1 project. Expo Line Phase 1 runs for 8.6 miles, crossing 28 city streets from downtown Los Angeles to Culver City. Project elements included design and construction of trackwork, two elevated stations, nine at-grade stations, a 2,300-foot cut-and-cover tunnel, two Park & Rides (including a 500-stall parking structure), and parkway landscaping along the 8.6-mile Exposition LRT system corridor. The project also had four aerial guideway structures carrying the transit line adjacent to and over Los Angeles city streets and the I-10 freeway. New stations offer state-of-the-art amenities, including ticket-vending machines, security cameras, real-time train arrival signs, bike racks, canopy-covered seating, and public art
