DART to host meetings on D2 light-rail project

Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) has scheduled two public meetings on Dec. 17 as it begins preparing a supplemental draft environmental impact statement (SDEIS) and preliminary engineering for the D2 light-rail project.

The D2 project consists of 2.4 miles of an at-grade and below-grade light-rail alignment with up to five new stations in the central business district of Dallas. The purpose of the SDEIS is to evaluate the impacts of the locally preferred alternative alignment and of additional design options that will likely be identified as part of the process, DART officials said in a public hearing notice.

The design options may result in new potential environmental and social impacts not explored in the original DEIS circulated for comment in March 2010, DART officials said.
