Transportation ProjectDallas Area Rapid Transit D.A.R.T. Blue Line Extension Garland, TX
Our firm has prepared requisite structural and electrical designs and performed a Load Flow Analysis on the traction power system to determine whether the size and locations of the four traction power substations provided by DART under a separate contract will support the system during normal and perturbed operating conditions. Our firm prepared interim OCS construction staging plans, allowing the temporary de-energizing of the existing catenary system at the east end of Garland Station. Normal operation of the existing DART service to the station was not interrupted during this part of the project. Our firm is conducting submittal and shop drawing reviews, and supporting the pre-revenue and revenue testing of the system. Wilbur Smith Associates provides complete engineering services for all types of rail systems.
