Herzog, Archer Western win Texas rail contract

Posted on October 3, 2008

  

Lewisville, Texas-based Denton County Transportation Authority (DCTA) is moving closer toward construction of its A-train, the 21-mile passenger rail project.

The project, slated to open in December 2010, is nearing the completion of the design phase and the DCTA took recent steps that will allow the agency to quickly advance construction.

The board of directors selected the North Texas Rail Group (NTRG) to provide pre-construction and construction services for the A-train, its rail stations and adjacent bicycle and pedestrian trail. NTRG is a team led by the joint venture of Herzog Contracting Corp. and Archer Western Contractors, a member of the Walsh Group of companies.

While contract details have not been finalized, DCTA intends that NTRG will provide pre-construction services to help finalize design; serve as general contractor during the construction of the A-train; and operate and maintain the system for the first five years of service operation.
