Fort Worth Transportation Authority seeks public input to narrow rail-station sites

The Fort Worth Transportation Authority (The T) will host a public meeting on Nov. 14 in Grapevine and two on Nov. 15 in Fort Worth to seek comments on proposed rail-station locations for The T's 40-mile 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 Commuter Rail Corridor Web Site features information about proposed station locations.

At the November meetings, The T also will provide an update on the environmental team's work, including information about the environmental conditions along the existing rail line corridor in the areas between the proposed stations.

Following the final selection of sites in late November, The T will begin studies and documentation to meet criteria for a federally required environmental review.
