Dallas City Council approves DART D2 Subway resolution




The Dallas City Council has unanimously approved a resolution supporting the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) D2 Subway Project, a second light-rail line that will run through downtown Dallas and extend from Victory Park to Deep Ellum.

The resolution includes a commitment to continue to work towards addressing community concerns on the east end of the alignment.

"The DART D2 Subway project is an important regional project," said Paul N. Wageman, chair of the DART Board of Directors. "The second light rail alignment through downtown Dallas is a long-term investment in mass transit to support both the city's and the region's goals of a more walkable, transit-oriented and sustainable region. The DART Board appreciates the Dallas City Council's continued support of this transportation initiative."

The Dallas-Fort Worth area continues to experience unprecedented growth, with new businesses and residents moving to the area every day. The primary purpose of the D2 Subway project is to add long-term passenger carrying capacity to the DART light-rail system and provide operational flexibility and added reliability--especially important for the thousands of riders that use the DART system every day to get to work, services and school. .......(more)
