Public hearings to review light rail's potential impact

DART invites input to Northwest Corridor environmental report

Residents and business owners along DART's Northwest Corridor are invited participate in public hearings reviewing a Draft Environmental Impact Statement for the proposed 17.8-mile light-rail extension to Northwest Dallas. Public hearings are set for:

DATE/TIME:   Thursday, July 11, 6:30 p.m.
PLACE:   Bachman Recreation Center, 2750 Bachman Drive (Mapsco 33-C)
 
DATE/TIME:   Monday, July 15, 6:30 p.m.
PLACE:   Farmers Branch Manske Library, 13613 Webb Chapel Road, corner of Golfing Green (Mapsco 13-P)
 
DATE/TIME:   Tuesday, July 16, 6:30 p.m.
PLACE:   Carrollton Frankford Village Branch Library, 3030 Josey Lane #130 (Mapsco 3-E)

The environmental study outlines the potential transportation and environmental impacts of the proposed expansion. The new line will extend DART's rail service from Downtown Dallas, through the Medical Center area, continue to Farmers Branch and into Carrollton. A second section of the line will travel from Northwest Highway into Las Colinas, North Irving and DFW Airport.

These hearings are part of a public review process continuing through July 30. For complete details, call DART Community Affairs at 214-749-2598 or see the study at http://www.DART.org/about/expansion/nweis/nwdeis.htm. Copies of the study are available at selected Dallas, Carrollton and Farmers Branch Libraries.
