TEXRail Commuter Line
Fort Worth, Texas
TEXRail, a new 27-mile commuter rail line, connects downtown Fort Worth to Dallas Fort Worth International Airport’s Terminal B, while providing premium amenities, like work tables, USB charging ports, vertical bicycle racks, overhead luggage racks and a designated quiet car. The train also offers level boarding, making it easy for passengers with bikes, strollers, rolling luggage or wheelchairs.
Trinity Metro selected the Parsons/TranSystems Joint Venture to prepare final design, which included validating existing 30% plans and preparing final bid documents for all track, structures, utilities, grade crossings, and stations in just 15 months. The JV team also provided construction phase services as a part of the project. The project included 32 structures ranging from the rehabilitation of short, single span structures to major new construction. It also included the design of nine stations. Completed within an accelerated schedule, the team worked well together maintaining safety and quality, to create an amenity that will benefit North Texans well into the future.
