  • No new projects


1:  Perform a “Security and Emergency Management Preparedness Capabilities Assessment” and an “Operating & Support Hazard Analysis (OSHA)” for the City of Houston’s GO-METRO-Rail projects

The project consists of:

  • Three new rail alignments (North, East, and South-east Corridors)
  • Two (2) new Light Rail Vehicles (LRVs)
  • A new Service and Inspection (S&I) maintenance facility with a rail storage yard located along the East Corridor
  • An additional rail storage yard and administrative building located at the end of the South-east corridor
  • The Rail Operation Center (ROC) maintenance facility, rail yard, and Traction Power Sub-station (TPSS) expansion
  • An upgrade to the Operational Control Center (OCC) at the City of Houston’s TranStar facility
  • An upgrade to the existing Redline to integrate the new alignments

The primary goals are to:

  • Assist METRO in identifying areas within the agency’s security and emergency management preparedness status/requirements that may need changing and or updating to adequately support the integration of the new rail alignments, LRVs, rail yards, maintenance facilities, and OCC.
  • Ensure that all operating and support related hazards are identified as early as possible in the construction process with recommended mitigations for METRO to consider prior to revenue service
