Working Together: Addressing Concerns About D2

Infrastructure projects like D2 can both benefit and impact surrounding communities. Since the project development phase began in December 2015, DART has proactively included stakeholders and the public in the development process to identify concerns about where the line will go, what it will look like, and how it may impact the surrounding areas.

Since then, we have received written comments reflecting a number of key concerns. DART documents every written comment we receive, and those comments are helping inform the project’s progress. As you might expect, many comments express the same concerns because people have common interests.

Over the next few weeks, we will discuss in further detail how DART is specifically addressing the top six public concerns as we work toward refining the D2 alignment:

The planning and implementation of D2 is an iterative process. DART is committed to a transit solution that best balances the interests of everyone while adhering to the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) guidelines, safety and environmental regulations, and the project budget. Watch for more as we dive deeper into each of these concerns.

    Every issue brought up in this graphic could be avoided by selecting a full subway alignment. Another at-grade line slicing up downtown and taking away the possibility of future development is a failure.
