LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- AECOM Technology Corporation (NYSE: ACM), a leading provider of professional technical and management support services for government and commercial clients around the world, announced today that it has been awarded a US$17-million extension contract from Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) to complete the second phase of its light rail expansion program.

Under the contract extension, AECOM will provide a variety of project control, system integration and staff support services as DART completes the 20-mile expansion of its Orange and Blue light rail lines.

AECOM is honored by this opportunity to continue partnering closely with DART, a key client of ours for more than two decades," said John M. Dionisio, AECOM chairman and chief executive officer. "We look forward to delivering innovative solutions to enhance Dallas' mass transit systems."
