The Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) has awarded Archer Western a contract to build its new $28.5 million TEX Rail station.

DFW’s Terminal B Station will be adjacent to the airport’s Terminal B and serve as the final stop along TEX Rail’s projected 27-mile commuter rail system, which is currently under construction by the Archer Western-Herzog joint venture. The project is intended to connect downtown Fort Worth and the DFW Airport, officials say.

DFW expects that the new line will serve 8,000 daily riders, improving commuting times to and from Fort Worth. The new line is planned to include a walkway connecting to the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) station next to Terminal A.
