DART to Host City of Dallas District 12 Silver Line Regional Rail Meetings

Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) will hold monthly community meetings to discuss the construction of the DART Silver Line Regional Rail in District 12 of the City of Dallas beginning on Tuesday, September 20. DART staff and the design-build contractor, Archer Western Herzog (AWH), will be on hand to outline the latest design and construction developments and answer questions.

These small community meetings are designed to engage directly with adjacent residents of District 12 to explain ongoing and upcoming construction activities. On September 20, DART and AWH will be discussing the current and future work on Hillcrest Road, Dickerson Street, Campbell Road, and Davenport Road, as well as the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Memo to File: Hillcrest Road Design Advancement.

Each meeting in the series will highlight specific topics related to construction in the area. Topics will be determined close to the event date as construction is underway and changes to the construction schedules may change due to weather and unexpected conditions.

The 26-mile Silver Line project will traverse seven cities between DFW Airport, Grapevine, Coppell, Dallas, Carrollton, Addison, Richardson, and Plano. The primary purpose of the Silver Line is to provide passenger rail connections and service that will improve mobility, accessibility and system linkages to major employment, population, and activity centers in the northern part of the DART service area.

The Silver Line will interface with three DART light rail lines: DART's Orange Line at DFW Airport, the Green Line providing access to Dallas Love Field and Downtown Dallas via Downtown Carrollton Station, and DART's Red and Orange Lines at CityLine/Bush Station, giving riders easy access to Downtown Plano and the eastern side of the DART network.

The Silver Line will also connect with the Trinity Metro TEXRail commuter rail line at DFW North station providing access to Downtown Fort Worth and various other Tarrant County locales and provide access to the Denton County Transportation Authority (DCTA) A-train commuter rail line on the DART Green Line.
