Open house on high-speed transportation: Arlington
October 30 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm CDT
The study of high-speed transportation options to move people across Dallas-Fort Worth is hitting the road, with a series of in-person open houses scheduled throughout the corridor.
Each session will include a short video on a loop discussing the project and presentation boards throughout each venue to explain the different high-speed technologies and recommended route.
The sessions are intended to promote interaction between residents and the project team while providing an overview of the Phase 1 recommendations. Planners have recommended a route along the I-30 corridor and two potential technologies for further study – high-speed rail and hyperloop technologies. The technology selected will connect residents to the region’s existing transportation system, as well as the planned high-speed rail line under development between Dallas and Houston and a future line between Fort Worth and South Texas.
Large venues have been chosen to allow for adequate social distancing, and each location will offer free parking nearby.
Here is the schedule:
- Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie, Tuesday, Oct. 12, 5-8 p.m. Free parking at Gate 1; follow signs to East Grandstand Will Call.
- Southside Preservation Hall, 1519 Lipscomb St., Fort Worth, Tuesday, Oct. 19, 4-7 p.m.
