The scope of services calls for project management, field surveying, environmental assessment, civil and structural engineering and architectural and railroad crossing services. Urban Engineers will serve as the prime firm with CTC, Inc., (CTC) supplementing work The T needs at railroad crossings, particularly quiet zone design and railroad crossing upgrades.
"As Urban continues its growth in this region, we are thrilled to have an opportunity to provide transportation solutions to the T on this important contract and work again with CTC," said Bill Thomsen, P.E., senior vice president and general manager of Urban Engineers.
According to Mike Cunningham, CEO of CTC, the two firms are currently working with the T to create a quiet zone in Colleyville, Texas.
"I'm pleased that CTC can offer its expertise in highway-rail crossings to the T on an as-needed basis, as the agency moves closer to implementing commuter rail," said Cunningham. "This contract allows CTC to merge our knowledge of rail with Urban's national transit center expertise. It's a win-win for everyone."
Under terms of the contract, the T will issue task orders for individual projects included in the scope of services as needed.
