Rail and Transit

From cross country treks to cross city jaunts, the vast railroad infrastructure of the United States has moved goods and people efficiently and effectively since its beginning in the 19th century. Now, more than ever before, railways aren’t just about trains. They’re about safety, compliance, productivity, and user-friendliness. CHA understands how important these issues are to our clients, to the businesses they run, and to the customers they serve.

CHA's rail professionals have hands-on industry backgrounds. Over the past 25 years, we have planned, programmed, assessed, and selected all types of rail sites. We have coordinated, designed and reconstructed all types of rail facilities, tracks and infrastructure for a full range of public and private passenger service providers, Class 1 freight railroads, short line railroads, state DOT rail agencies, scenic railroads, transportation authorities, and metropolitan planning organizations. Our experience covers new and old stations, bridges and tracks; grade crossings and signal/warning systems; intermodal and transloading facilities; and yards, terminals, maintenance facilities, and shops.
