DART is hosting a series of community open houses to review the progress of the Cotton Belt Regional Rail Corridor Project. The first open house is Monday in Carrollton.
DART, in cooperation with the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), is preparing an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to assess the impacts and benefits of passenger rail service on the 26-mile long Cotton Belt Corridor from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport to Plano.
Open house displays will include:
- Updated alignment drawings and station layout
- Results of Traffic/Grade Separation Analysis
- Identification of existing conditions along corridor including, parks, cultural resources, land uses, etc.
This series of open house meetings will focus on existing conditions along the corridor and information learned in the data collection phase of the project. Future public meetings will focus on corridor impacts and mitigation.
