Abstract: The new 27.2 mi long TEXRail commuter rail line facilitates travel between downtown Fort Worth, Texas, and the busy Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport. Challenges to be overcome during the project included working in and/or around existing rail stations and lines, myriad utilities, and airport facilities. Since beginning operations last year, the $1.034-billion project has substantially improved mobility in the Fort Worth metropolitan region.
