The Fort Worth Transportation Authority (The T) awarded a three-year contract to the Urban Engineers-led team to provide professional engineering services as part of an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity contract.
Under terms of the contract, The T will issue task orders for individual projects that could require project management, field surveying, environmental assessment, civil and structural engineering, and architectural and railroad crossing services. Urban Engineers will serve as the prime firm with CTC supplementing work The T needs at railroad crossings, particularly quiet zone design and railroad crossing upgrades. The two firms are currently working with The T to create a quiet zone in Colleyville, Texas.
The T provides quality public transportation to Tarrant County and the North Central Texas region. Annually, The T provides nearly nine million passenger trips on buses, vanpools, and the Trinity Railway Express, which it jointly owns with Dallas Area Rapid Transit. The T is developing a commuter rail from southwestern Fort Worth to Dallas-Fort Worth Airport planned to start in 2016.
“As Urban continues its growth in this region, we are thrilled to have an opportunity to provide transportation solutions to The T on this important contract and work again with CTC,” Bill Thomsen, PE, Urban Engineers Senior Vice President and General Manager, said.
