Introduction to Rail and Transit Engineering
Our services include the complete planning, design, and construction of railways including high-speed rail, light rail, freight railways, multi-modal facilities, and maintenance yards. For this work, we regularly address such critical issues as, including public involvement, environmental concerns, construction phasing, coordination among regulatory agencies, right-of-way status, and the evaluation of multi-modal alternatives.
