LAN consulting firm chosen for bullet train station study in Dallas

By Bill Hethcock, Dallas Business Journal


The North Central Texas Council of Governments has selected the Lockwood, Andrews & Newnam consulting firm to conduct a station area planning study in downtown Dallas for the proposed high-speed rail line between North Texas and Houston.

The contract amount and other financial specifics were not immediately released by the council or the Houston-based engineering consultancy. The study will be completed in summer 2017.

The firm, which goes by the acronym LAN, will be supported by sub-consultants AZTEC/TYPSA and Leo A Daly as specialty team members. AZTEC/TYPSA will draw on its expertise with high-speed rail projects around the world, while Leo A Daly will provide land use and economic development services.

The sub-consultant team also includes Bowman Engineering & Consulting, DRW Planning Studio and Civil Associates.

The team will evaluate major transportation and land use changes that will occur with the advent of high-speed passenger rail service for the Dallas-Fort Worth region, and ways these impacts can be absorbed or mitigated.
