All Aboard Florida named Archer Western as construction manager for the rail infrastructure at Orlando International Airport.

Working closely with the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority (GOAA), Archer Western will build the railway, roadway and related structures for All Aboard Florida’s intercity passenger trains that begin service from the airport in late 2017. This work is expected to create 75 direct jobs and hundreds of additional opportunities for subcontractors and suppliers.

Earlier this year, All Aboard Florida awarded Archer Western overall responsibility for construction management and general-contracting services for the Miami-to-West-Palm-Beach segment of its Miami-to-Orlando rail service. This contract consolidates the work that Archer Western has underway along the south corridor, which includes safety improvements and upgrades, track work, rail signalization and structural work.

The company’s existing work with All Aboard Florida and the Orlando International Airport creates added efficiencies for the privately-funded passenger-rail project.
