 BOSTON, Aug. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- To meet the growing challenges of the transportation industry, Stone & Webster Engineering Corporation has formed a Transportation Services division to broaden services to the transit, railroad, airport, highway and bridge markets.
 Stone & Webster Transportation Services will act as a focal point for the coordination of Stone & Webster's corporate transportation resources and for the execution of projects. By providing transportation clients with a full range of project management, engineering, design, environmental and construction services, the company is demonstrating its commitment to this critical market sector.
 "We anticipate rapid growth in transportation business activities as a result of the new administration's focus on investment in transportation infrastructure," said Daniel L. Jones Jr., president of Stone & Webster Transportation Services. "We expect this trend to continue throughout the 1990's and look forward to providing our clients with a full range of consulting services required to solve transportation problems at the state, regional and national levels."
 Stone & Webster's involvement in transportation began early in its history. The company worked on the development and construction of a 35-mile, high-speed interurban line that opened in 1902 between Dallas and Forth Worth. The Seattle-Everett interurban line, which linked those two cities beginning in 1910, and the 50-mile line Galveston- Houston Electric Railway, completed in 1911, were other Stone & Webster projects.
 Current assignments in which Stone & Webster is providing engineering, design, construction or other services include the $500 million Fort Point Channel Underground Transitway in Boston, a two- mile subway line with six underground stations, and the multibillion dollar Boston Central Artery/Third Harbor Tunnel program. Elsewhere Stone & Webster is providing program management oversight and engineering services for the Northumberland Strait Fixed Crossing to Prince Edward Island in Canada.
 Stone & Webster also is providing construction management services for the 3.5 mile subway portion of the newest Dallas Area Rapid Transit LRT starter line; conducting studies for New Jersey Transit relating to the South Amboy Substation; and providing mechanical and electrical engineering services for Miami International Airport; and other public works programs at the new Denver International Airport and O'Hare and Midway Airport in Chicago.
 Stone & Webster Engineering Corporation, a subsidiary of New York City-based Stone & Webster, Incorporated (NYSE: SW), provides a full range of engineering, architectural, construction management and environmental services to the transportation industry. Stone & Webster Transportation Services is headquartered in Boston and has offices nationwide.
