Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) announced that long portions of steel rails were delivered last week to Addison, Texas, for the agency’s planned Silver Line, a regional-rail service between Plano and Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport. 

Manufactured by Steel Dynamics Inc. in Indiana, the rail arrived in north Texas by special train as part of an overall shipment of 50 rail segments. 

Each rail shipment spanned about 1,600 feet long and was carried 1,100 miles, DART officials said in a press release.

Preparation for the entire 26-mile Silver Line has been underway since early 2019. Anticipated completion is in 2022.
