Four firms are vying to manage the Wisconsin Department of Transportation’s project to replace Milwaukee Intermodal Station’s train shed.

Los Angeles-based AECOM Technical Services Inc., Minneapolis-based Mortenson Infrastructure Inc., and Milwaukee-based Bloom Cos. LLC and C.G. Schmidt Inc. all responded to the state’s request for notices of interest. They are scheduled for interviews Feb. 19 in Madison.

The $15 million project is designed to bring the train shed, where passengers board and get off trains, into compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act standards. Construction bids are expected to be released in May, and work is expected to take 15 to 18 months. WisDOT will pay for the project with state and federal money.

Brock Bergey, a WisDOT spokesman, said the department expects to award the construction management contract in early March.
