DART agrees to give bridge to city; removal helps Trinity River Corridor, flooding risk
The Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) Board has authorized the agency to proceed with handing over the Atchison Topeka & Santa Fe (AT&SF) Trestle Bridge Structure to the City of Dallas.
Dallas requested acquiring the structure for the purpose of removing it after the US Army Corps of Engineers Project for Floodway Control concluded removing the AT&SF bridge would help reduce flood risk and enhance the ecosystem in Dallas Trinity River Corridor.
