Fort Worth Transportation Authority to identify station locations, begin station design for new commuter-rail line

The Fort Worth Transportation Authority (The T) will host three rail-station planning public roundtables next week to help identify locations and develop station designs for The T’s proposed commuter rail line.

The 11-station line would run from Fort Worth’s Granbury Road/South Hulen area through downtown Fort Worth, then northeast to downtown Grapevine and to the north entrance of the Dallas-Fort Worth airport. The line would connect with Trinity Railway Express in downtown Fort Worth.

The Southwest-to-Northeast Rail Corridor Web site features information about proposed station locations.

In June, The T held a series of public meetings to explain details of an environmental study to identify and address the proposed Southwest-to-Northeast Rail Corridor’s environmental impacts. The review process will document existing natural, social, cultural, historical and archaeological conditions along the proposed rail line route and selected station sites. The review will assess the projects’ potential impacts and propose mitigation measures.
