DART D2 Subway Project Named Global Light Rail Award "Vision of the Year"
At this year's Global Light Rail Awards, recognizing excellence and innovation in the global light and urban rail sector, Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) was named the winner of the "Vision of the Year" for the D2 Subway project.
The DART D2 Subway project is a future second light rail line through downtown Dallas that extends from Victory Park to Deep Ellum. The D2 project reached the 30% level of preliminary design in October. A Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) is being prepared in cooperation with Federal Transit Administration (FTA). The FTA plans to issue a combined FEIS and Record of Decision (ROD) to environmentally clear the project so it can advance into the next stage of development. Once the FEIS/ROD is issued and FTA approves the project into the Engineering phase, DART will advance the project through detailed design and construction. Public, agency and stakeholder involvement will continue to be integral to the process.
