Archer Western to Build TEX Rail Station at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - February 06, 2017) - Archer Western has been selected by the Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) to build a new $28.5 million TEX Rail station adjacent to Terminal B at DFW.

The Terminal B station will serve as the terminating stop in TEX Rail's planned 27-mile commuter rail project, currently under construction by the Archer Western Herzog Joint Venture that will connect downtown Fort Worth and DFW Airport. The new line is expected to serve 8,000 daily riders, and will improve commuting times to and from Fort Worth, and will feature a walkway connecting to the existing Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) station next to Terminal A.
