DART – Let's Go.

D2 Subway: Dallas Central Business District (CBD) Second Light Rail Alignment

Return to D2 Subway: Dallas Central Business District (CBD) Second Light Rail Alignment Information

The Federal Transit Administration (FTA), with Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) as the local project sponsor, has prepared the Supplemental Draft Environmental Impact Statement (SDEIS) for the Dallas CBD Second Light Rail Alignment (D2 Subway). You can view the SDEIS HERE. The SDEIS includes several appendices, such as the 20% Preliminary Engineering design plans.

Copies of the SDEIS are also available for public viewing at the Dallas Public Library, 1515 Young St, Dallas, TX 75201. Library hours may be affected by COVID-19 restrictions. Please contact DART Community Engagement at 214-749-2543 to make arrangements for viewing hard copy if needed.

Comments

The 45-day public comment period for the SDEIS was from May 15, 2020 through June 29, 2020. Comments received during the 45-day review period are being classified and recorded into appropriate subject areas. All comments will be reviewed and documented. However, only substantive comments will receive responses and be documented in the Final EIS/Record of Decision.

While the official SDEIS comment period has closed, you are still welcome to submit comments to [email protected]; however, they will not be documented in the Final EIS/Record of Decision.
