Included in the second phase is completion of DART’s 26.5-mile Green Line and 20-mile expansion of DART’s Orange and Blue lines. AECOM will provide a variety of project control, system integration, and staff support services.

“AECOM has worked closely with DART for nearly two decades," said AECOM President and Chief Executive Officer John M. Dionisio. “We are proud to continue this relationship as we enhance the mass transit systems of Dallas.”

AECOM’s work on the current light rail contract began during 2002; the company says the contract has a value of $58.1 million to date.
