 Cotton Belt Update

Presentations at the December 11th DART Board Meeting reflected the projected cost of $27M that would be needed to double-track the rail line through North Dallas. What drives part of that cost is terrain through the North Dallas area where grade changes and bridges require special attention (from Knoll Trail to Coit).
Currently, DART plans to run trains every 30 minutes. Double tracking would allow operations to occur every 20 minutes.

The DART Board also approved Archer Western Herzog’s bid to serve as the primary construction contractor.
The Federal loan (RRIF loan) DART has requested to finance the construction is progressing and is scheduled to be finalized sometime between the 20th and 28th of December.

Many of the noise, vibration, and safety concerns Sandy Greyson, the City of Dallas, and our Cottonbelt Concerned Citizens Coalition have advocated are included in the mitigation plans. Those items include such things as 15-foot-high sound-blocking walls, special absorption measures (to minimize vibration), double-gating at crossings (to protect children/pedestrians at crossings), directional bells, etc.

If you want to learn more details, go to the DART website (Click here for the Cotton Belt section) and pull up the FEIS (Final Environmental Impact Study).

Planning and Urban Design gave us the following two useful URLs.

The first one lists upcoming street repaving.

The next one is a bit harder to use/follow, but it covers the proposed alley work.

The alleys were the ones identified in the 2017 bond package.
