Notice of DART Community Meetings
Cotton Belt Regional Rail Corridor

Meetings Start March 21, 2019

You are invited to attend a community meeting to review the progress of the Cotton Belt Corridor Regional Rail Project. Members of the Design-Pre-construction Management Team will be on hand to outline the latest developments and answer your questions. DART, in cooperation with the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), has prepared an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to assess the impacts and benefits of passenger rail service on the 26-mile long Cotton Belt Corridor from DFW International Airport to Plano.

Presentations during these meetings will include:
  • Updated alignment drawings showing track configurations, final grade separations (bridges) and station locations per the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS);
  • An overview of the Design-Builder's early design and construction schedule;
  • A description of pre-construction equipment and processes to be used along the alignment;
  • A general summary of project information;
  • Identification of contacts for FAQs and community concerns.
