The Dallas/Fort Worth Airport is in the process of building a Tex Rail Station that will eventually allow commuters to take a train from downtown Fort Worth all the way to the terminals. The Tex Rail project is slated to include two stations on airport property and will have 27 miles of commuter rails. Upon completion, the project will enable employees and Metroplex residents to ride the train into downtown Fort Worth or to the airport, saving the time and frustration of driving in heavy traffic.

The project is expected to cost over $1 billion to construct. Speed Fab-Crete completed two ECO-SPAN® arch box bridges for the project. One of the bridges carries the rail line over a service road while the other provides access to the North Express Parking Lot and runs parallel to the Express Loop North.
