Santa Fe Alliance Intermodal Transportation Center, 1994 OCEA
Share |


The Santa Fe Alliance Intermodal Transportation Center, located 20 miles north of Fort Worth, was a groundbreaking project representing excellence in integrated industrial transportation and collaboration between private and public stakeholders. Construction of the new intermodal transportation hub consisted of three major components, including relocation of the main line of the Santa Fe Railway and construction of  the Intermodal Facility (IMF) and the Consolidated Transportation Center (CTC).

 

The design of the project includes an innovative fuel accounting system that keeps a computer file register detailing how much diesel fuel goes into each locomotive and tracks how much goes into the day-service tank from the storage tank. It also includes fully-automated switching and closed-circuit television security. Engineers paid careful attention to aesthetics (a consideration which is not typically paramount for railroad facilities) in order to integrate the design of the IMF and the CTC with the unique and sophisticated design of the nearby Alliance development and airport. The Santa Fe Railway Intermodal Hub and Rail Complex has become a great asset to the cities of Dallas and Fort Worth, working together with Alliance Airport and Dallas Area Rapid Transport (DART) to dramatically expand multimodal transportation -  promoting economic development through stronger trade ties with Canada and Mexico.
