Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) said its plan to build the D2 subway through downtown Dallas has reached an important milestone, with 20% completion of the design for the $1.4-billion project. Next will be preparation of a supplemental draft environment impact statement (EIS) to access potential impacts and benefits of the project.
The supplemental draft EIS and a preliminary design will be published later this spring for a 45-day public review.
To advance the project through the Capital Investment Grant program of the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), DART must request entry into the program’s engineering phases and complete 30% of design and the final EIS.
Once D2 is approved by the FTA into the engineering phase, DART will advance the project through design and construction with a projected revenue start date of 2025. The transit agency noted that D2 is one element of an integrated, multi-modal network.
