LAN to provide rail engineering services for US Denton County

The Denton County Transportation Authority (DCTA) has selected civil engineering firm Lockwood, Andrews & Newnam, Inc. (LAN) to provide railway engineering services for its rail projects over the next three years.
In accordance with its strategic plan, DCTA will issue projects to LAN that enhance the existing transit network and support initiatives such as A-train corridor expansions to Cotton Belt and North Denton, implementation of rail service from Carrollton to Frisco/Prosper, and evaluation of potential future rail expansions to other corridors throughout the service area.
As part of its services, LAN will provide rail system guideway design, additions or modifications to existing guideway, signal system design, rail bridge engineering and inspection, station design, schedule modeling and emergency railroad engineering services.
DCTA provides public transport services in many communities throughout Denton County. The agency carries nearly three million passengers annually system-wide. The central element of DCTA’s service plan is the 34-km A-train commuter rail line, which connects with the Dallas Area Rapid Transit’s (DART) Green Line at Trinity Mills in Carrollton and provides service to five stations within Denton County.
