Passenger & Commuter Rail
VLine-MelbournePassenger and Commuter Rail Design and Construction Project Management
Crouch Engineering provides the full spectrum of planning and engineering services required for the successful completion of Railway Passenger and Commuter Railroad Projects.
CEPC is nearing completion of the design of an historic passenger rail project, restoring passenger service to the City of Norfolk, VA, which has not had passenger service in over 40 years.  When the first train runs in May, 2012, passengers will be able to take Amtrak from Norfolk to Richmond and Washington, D.C., and all points connecting in D.C.  The survey and design capacity project includes a connection track between Norfolk Southern Railway and the CSX Transportation Railroad, additional main tracks, multiple cross-overs and interlockings, the development of a passenger platform in Norfolk, as well as an Amtrak service center in Norfolk.
CEPC has completed on passenger rail and commuter rail feasibility studies and maintenance programs in in the US, Australia and West Africa, and has recently served over a four-year period as the Project Manager for the DART Blue Line and Green Line Projects on the Dallas, Garland and Northeastern Railroad.
CEPC performed most of the preliminary engineering for the Music City Star, preparing concept designs for curve alignment improvements, and was able to design projects that improved long sections of track for 80 mph design speed, eliminated several at-grade highway crossings.
