The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) today issued a notice of the availability of the final environmental and impact statement/record of decision (FEIS/ROD) of the D2 Subway, along with the project's 30% design.
The FEIS/ROD includes responses to comments from the public and agency review of the supplemental draft EIS. A few changes have been made to the project, DART officials said in a press release.
The completion of the FEIS/ROD environmentally clears the project to advance to the next stage of development. DART officials have been working closely with the FTA to position the project for federal funding as a core capacity project and to gain entry into the engineering phase of the Capital Investment Grant (CIG) program.
The review process for entry into the engineering phase is expected to take six to nine months, DART officials said.
The D2 Subway project is a future second light-rail line through downtown Dallas that would extend from Victory Park to Deep Ellum. DART has been planning the project since 2007.
