“With the addition of the METRORail’s East End Line (Green Line) and Southeast Line (Purple Line), METRO has extended the light rail system from 7 miles to 22 miles. Shrader Engineering worked with METRO, HNTB, Omega Engineers, and Traffic Systems Construction on various sections of the new light rail lines. Our team contributed by providing power distribution, lighting, communications, and surveillance design for multiple segments. Shrader Engineering’s strength in electrical, communications, and security design makes us a premier resource for the mass transit industry.”
