Public hearings encourage input on light rail expansion
Community invited to comment on Southeast Corridor environmental report
Residents and business owners in DART's Southeast Corridor are invited participate in upcoming public hearings regarding the Draft Environmental Impact Statement for a proposed 10.2-mile light-rail extension to Southeast Dallas.
Light rail was chosen for the corridor because it will improve transportation in the area, create better access to jobs and contribute to improved air quality in the region. These hearings are part of a public review process that continues through April 8. Contact DART Community Affairs at 214-749-2598 or visit DART.org for information on the study.
