MULTATECH provided design services for Segment 2 of the TEXRail project. TEXRail is a dual service (passenger and freight) railroad that provides service between downtown Fort Worth and the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, operated by Trinity Metro. This project was broken into 3 segments, with Segment 2 being a 4.5-mile segment through the downtown Fort Worth corridor.
MULTATECH’s scope for Segment 2 included H&H, utility conflicts, water and sewer relocations, and civil for all at-grade crossings. In addition, we provided civil and MEP design for eight Park and Ride facilities corridor-wide, required knowledge of municipality, NCTCOG, TxDOT and DFW Airport standards. Park and Ride design included a parking lot, bus lanes, demolition and grading of site, utilities, drainage, and close coordination with architects.

Project Highlights:

  • Developed drainage area maps were using 1-foot aerial topography and ground survey data.
  • Drainage facilities developed according to the City’s iSWM standards.
  • Two FEMA crossings were modeled and the effects of the bridges were modeled in HEC-RAS using the Standard Project Flood modeling data.
  • Models and reports were prepared for FEMA, USACE and CDC
    review in coordination with the City Floodplain Manager.
  • Studied 177 potential municipal utility conflicts
  • Redesigned 28 water and sewer lines (2” water to 72” sewer line).
  • Designed an additional six utilities in Segment 3.
  • Provided civil and MEP design of 8 Park and Ride stations
  • Responsible for 68 at-grade rail crossings of local, collector, and arterial streets
  • Modified five additional streets affected by adjacent rail work
  • Responsible for maintenance of traffic through Segment 2
