VRX, Inc. has extensive experience with heavy and commuter rail projects in Texas including work with Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART), Denton County Transit Authority (DCTA), BNSF Railway, Fort Worth & Western Railroad (FWWR), and, more recently, with the Fort Worth Transportation Authority (aka Trinity Metro) and Archer Western-Herzog JV (AWH) on TEXRail.
VRX provided comprehensive environmental services and environmental management for AWH on the TEXRail project, a new 27-mile commuter rail line that extends from downtown Fort Worth, across northeast Tarrant County, through North Richland Hills and Grapevine, and into DFW International Airport’s Terminal B. TEXRail’s construction cost was estimated at $1 billion.
VRX’s efforts included developing, implementing, and maintaining the project-specific Construction Environmental Control Plan (CECP) and project-specific SW3P, including environmental mitigation plans, hazardous materials management plans, and procedures necessary to maintain environmental compliance. VRX managed necessary government/regulatory agency permitting, provided reviews, and provided comments on construction plan sets throughout the design process.
Throughout the construction phases of this project, VRX provided emergency response, environmental inspection, compliance and management, and verification of the quality and accuracy of environmental-related activities.
VRX was honored to receive a 2019 CMAA North Texas Award for Program Management after providing successful environmental management services to AWH on the TEXRail project.
