Trinity Metro has selected the AECOM team to conduct environmental assessment and preliminary engineering services for the TEXRail extension project in Fort Worth, Texas.
Trinity Metro plans to extend the commuter rail line south from downtown Fort Worth, Texas, connecting the Fort Worth T&P Station to the future TEXRail station in the Fort Worth Medical District. The extension will serve the more than 40,000 people who work in the fast-growing Medical District, plus residents and businesses in the surrounding Near Southside neighborhood.
The TEXRail commuter rail line opened in January 2019 and extends northeast for 27 miles between downtown Fort Worth and Dallas Fort Worth International Airport’s Terminal B. Stations are located along the corridor in North Fort Worth, North Richland Hills, Grapevine and DFW Airport. The extension project will add 2.1 miles with a proposed station south of Mistletoe Boulevard, near Baylor Scott & White All Saints Medical Center.
As part of the AECOM team, Armand Consulting, Inc. will review and assess the TEXRail System Safety and Security Program to ensure compliance with FTA requirements for the Preliminary Engineering (30% design) phase. The assessment will identify required activities and provide a road map of the project life cycle elements necessary for achieving full compliance with Circular FTA C 5800.1 – Safety and Security Management Guidance for Major Capital Projects.
