Austin-San Antonio, Texas




This proposed passenger rail system is one part of a three-part plan to reduce congestion on IH-35, improve freight mobility, speed NAFTA trade between Laredo and Dallas, and spur economic development in the Austin-San Antonio Corridor. The design/build team for this three-step strategy includes ATSER as project director. Step one will build SH 130, a 90-mile highway paralleling IH-35 from Georgetown to Seguin; step two will reroute Union Pacific's Through Freight; and step three will develop a regional passenger commuter rail. ATSER will also provide document control and management services with its proprietary software Track-IT™.
