DART approves $9.6 million in Dallas street repairs
The Dallas Area Rapid Transit's (DART) board has approved $9.6 million in street repairs in Dallas, including those near light-rail service.
The repairs will be part of 13 projects that include the design and construction of quiet zones around DART light-rail lines, sidewalk zones on DART bus routes and traffic signal priorities, as well as improvements to bus stops, pedestrian crossings and bus lanes.
Dallas city officials will take the lead in procuring, constructing, supervising, inspecting and making any future changes to the repair plans, DART officials said yesterday in a press release.
The repairs are part of an agency-approved street repair policy that permits DART to cooperate with service area cities to accomplish needed street repairs.
