TRE bridge replacement calls for shuttle buses in April
Buses are replacing Trinity Railway Express (TRE) trains between West Irving and CentrePort/DFW Airport stations the first full weekend of April.
TRE service will be suspended between the stations to replace a bridge over Bear Creek, a major step in TRE's ongoing double-track upgrade.
Construction will impact the final two westbound trains Friday evening, April 6, and all trains Saturday, April 7 and Monday, April 9.
Passengers can expect significant delays, especially during morning and afternoon rush hours on April 9, and are encouraged to allow extra time to transfer to shuttle buses. Buses will meet all eastbound and westbound trains at West Irving and CentrePort/DFW Airport stations to continue the trip. Staff will also be on hand to support transferring customers.
Weather permitting, normal rail service will resume Tuesday, April 10.
