Cotton Belt Corridor Field Work Mid-February – June 2019
Any need to access private property will be prohibited unless otherwise coordinated with the property Owner in advance of the work. Most activities will take place during the daytime hours and will involve minor surveying and construction equipment such as GPS instruments, tripods, service vehicles, pickup trucks, small tools and light duty drill rigs.
The DART Cotton Belt Rail Line Project is a 26-mile line that will extend from DFW Airport to Shiloh Road in Plano and traverse seven cities, including Coppell. The Cotton Belt Project’s primary purpose is to provide 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 Cotton Belt Project would interface with three DART LRT lines: The Red Line in Richardson/Plano, the Green Line in Carrollton and the Orange Line at DFW Airport. Also at DFW Airport the project would connect to Fort Worth Transit Authority's TEX Rail Regional Rail Line to Fort Worth and the DFW Airport Skylink People Mover.
The City of Coppell hosted two public meetings on March 1 and March 9, 2017 to provide an update on the planned DART Cotton Belt Rail Line Project. For more information about the background and development of the project,
watch the March 9, 2017 meeting or view the
March 9, 2017 presentation.
The City of Coppell is doing what we can to influence DART to the best interest of the Coppell citizenry. This includes the adoption of a resolution on June 13, 2017 by the Mayor and City Council stating:
"The City of Coppell fully supports DART Board redesign and realignment of the Cotton Belt Rail line throughout Coppell from Luna Road westward to Freeport Parkway, which would incorporate a Southern reconfiguration to provide a station in the Northlake/Cypress Water Campus subject to grade separation, quiet zones, sound walls and trail by rail segments along the entire route through Coppell."
