The engineering firm STV announced it has signed a contract to support the Florida DOT's commuter rail operation SunRail in the agency's Phase 2 North project.
The project is a 12.2-mile, $34 million design-build commuter railroad extension and passenger station in DeLand, Fla., and Herzog is the prime contractor.
The current SunRail system in central Florida will be extended to the north from DeBary Station to the DeLand Amtrak Station in Volusia County. The scope of STV’s work includes engineering design services for 4 miles of double tracking, communications and electrical engineering at the agency’s new DeLand Station, along with a total rehabilitation of the pedestrian tunnel at Lake Beresford Park.
STV senior special projects manager said, “STV is energized to work on this important project for the people of Volusia County and central Florida. [The project] will ease traffic congestion for travelers and shore up a connection from the residential areas of Volusia County to the employment center of Orlando. We are proud to help deliver this solution to the people in this community.”
