DFW selects Archer Western to build USD 28.5m rail station

Archer Western has been selected by the Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) to build a new USD 28.5m TEX Rail station adjacent to Terminal B at DFW, the company said.

The Terminal B station will serve as the terminating stop in TEX Rail´s planned 27-mile commuter rail project, currently under construction by the Archer Western Herzog Joint Venture that will connect downtown Fort Worth and DFW Airport.

The new line is expected to serve 8,000 daily riders, and will improve commuting times to and from Fort Worth, and will feature a walkway connecting to the existing Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) station next to Terminal A.

Archer Western has completed more than 55-miles of passenger rail in the Dallas Fort Worth area over the last 17 years and is currently delivering new automated people mover systems at Orlando and Tampa international airports.

Archer Western is part of The Walsh Group, a 119-year-old family-owned company providing design, build, finance, operation and activation services. The Walsh Group operates as Archer Western, Walsh Construction, and Walsh Canada across 19 regional offices.
