ECCO III Enterprises, Inc. was part of the Joint Venture Team of Skanska/ECCO III/Jacobs Engineering & WSP (Previously Parson Brinkerhoff) to design and construct this large-scale Design-Build project that was awarded in October 2018.

Other work for this project includes the completion of the medium voltage distribution 13.2KV loop with new transformers and their associated electric duct-banks, along with required site work and track work.
