Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) Green Line Expansion, CM/GC-1
$1.8 billion design/build project; 28 miles of light rail
Phase 1 of the project consisted of developing a new high school with one and two story sections. Phase 2 was for the development of the new stadium facility including a multi-story press box, artificial turf playing surface and state of the art running track. Ancillary facilities included tennis courts and indoor athletic facilities. The stadium includes reserved seating for 1,200 persons near midfield. The reserved seating includes individual seats with arms.
