Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) received new rail Dec. 18 for its Silver Line project in Plano.
A total of 200, 80-foot rail sections, or 16,000 feet of rail, were delivered by special train from Steel Dynamics, Inc., of Indiana, to a location east of Shiloh Road in Plano, Texas, and off-loaded adjacent to the existing tracks.
The 26-mile Silver Line Regional Rail project is currently under construction. Providing passenger rail connections and service that will improve mobility, accessibility and system linkages to major employment, population and activity centers in the northern part of the DART Service Area, the commuter rail line will traverse seven north Texas cities between DFW Airport, Grapevine, Coppell, Dallas, Carrollton, Addison, Richardson and Plano.
