DART D2 Subway Project Named Global Light Rail Award "Vision of the Year"

DALLAS, TX — At the Global Light Rail Awards, recognizing excellence and innovation in the global light and urban rail sector, Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) was named the winner of the "Vision of the Year" for the D2 Subway project.

The DART D2 Subway project is a future second light rail line through downtown Dallas that extends from Victory Park to Deep Ellum. The D2 project reached the 30 percent level of preliminary design in October. A Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) is being prepared in cooperation with the Federal Transit Administration (FTA). The FTA plans to issue a combined FEIS and Record of Decision (ROD) to environmentally clear the project so it can advance into the next stage of development. Once the FEIS/ROD is issued and FTA approves the project into the engineering phase, DART will advance the project through detailed design and construction.

Public, agency, and stakeholder involvement will continue to be integral to the process. D2 is proposed as part of a program of interrelated projects aimed to improve capacity of the system and access and circulation in the downtown core. In addition to the D2 Subway, DART is advancing the Red and Blue Line Platform Extensions project, which entails modifications at 28 stations on the Red and Blue Lines to accommodate longer trains. This project is under construction and scheduled for completion in 2022.
