City of Anaheim Press Release "Next Steps ARTIC groundbreaking"

The City of Anaheim has posted the following Press Release update regarding the ARTIC project...While no actual date has been set... (ground breaking was to be this spring)  It has been pushed back to the fall of this year.

ANAHEIM, CA - (February 23, 2012) - Momentum continues to build for the Anaheim Regional Transportation 
Intermodal Center – ARTIC – as the iconic transportation center project moves forward with plans for a 
groundbreaking this fall and grand opening in the fall of 2014. Upon completion ARTIC is projected to serve more 
than 10,000 commuters each day, and will increase mobility options for residents, business travelers and visitors to 
Anaheim, Orange County and the entire southern California region.

Another milestone in this grand project is the federal environmental approval recently garnered by the 
City of Anaheim and the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) for ARTIC. On Feb. 21, ARTIC 
received a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for its Environmental Assessment from the Federal 
Transportation Authority (FTA), thus completing both state and federal environmental approvals for this project.

“By gaining final environmental approvals from both the federal and state government, ARTIC has cleared two 
significant hurdles that move the project much closer to groundbreaking,” said Anaheim Mayor Tom Tait. 
“The City of Anaheim is working closely with OCTA on the planning and construction of this state-of-the-art facility. 
ARTIC will make travel in Southern California easier and we all look forward to the completion of this project.”

Project documents are moving toward completion with the preparation of construction plans, permit review 
processes, and anticipated design completion in late spring. The next major ARTIC project milestone is project 
bidding, which is also on target for late spring and will be preceded by a pre-bid conference. Upon selection of a general contractor, 
construction is anticipated to start this fall.
