Meeting the demand for multi-modal transportation solutions requires careful planning, specialized knowledge, and deep experience. DEA’s nationally-recognized transit team has completed hundreds of successful transit projects of all sizes and for a variety of clients throughout the U.S. As public transit serves the community, decisions must be made locally within a framework that balances local, state and federal requirements with project needs. The added value that DEA brings to a project is our commitment to collaboration with clients and their communities to achieve a successful transit project.
Whether you are considering rails or wheels, or the facilities that support them, DEA’s transit team can provide access to a complete range of services for every project, from initial concept through planning, environmental compliance, and funding, to service planning, operations design, and construction. Our team includes transportation, civil and structural engineers, planners, environmental scientists, permitting specialists, and construction managers, all of whom have years of experience collaborating on projects. We have demonstrated success in working together to help our clients build high-quality, cost-effective and sustainable transit systems for their communities.
The key to success in the heavy rail industry is specialized knowledge. DEA has extensive expertise in heavy rail design, engineering, surveying, 3-D scanning, and construction oversight, enabling us to provide our clients with the unique solutions they require. DEA’s railroad engineers and planners have the technical expertise to develop successful system-wide rail projects for both freight and passenger rail systems.
DEA works directly with Class I railroads, short line railroads, industrial clients, ports, and public agencies to assist with the ongoing and ever-increasing demand to move freight, people, and cargo safely and more efficiently. We blend technical knowledge, skill, and experience to arrive at creative solutions without compromising the integrity of the design or efficiency of operations. We work with in-house structural engineers, civil engineers, transportation planners and engineers, environmental specialists, and survey crews to develop cost-effective and constructible design solutions to meet our clients’ needs.
