Trinity Metro last week selected AECOM to conduct an environmental assessment and preliminary engineering work for the 2.1-mile TEXRail commuter-rail extension in Fort Worth, Texas.

Trinity Metro plans to extend the commuter-rail line south from downtown Fort Worth to a proposed station south of Mistletoe Boulevard in the Forth Worth Medical District. 

Currently, the line runs as far south as the Fort Worth T&P Station and does not yet serve the medical district or southern neighborhoods. 

"This expansion is intended to improve transit equity by providing access to healthcare services for local residents who may not have a vehicle and will ease the commute for healthcare workers traveling in and out of the district," said Dev Rastogi, AECOM’s vice president and Dallas executive, in a press release.

Under the agreement, AECOM will review the project's environmental impact and prepare preliminary engineering plans, environmental documentation and support public outreach as required by federal regulations.

Financial details of the contract were not disclosed in a press release.
