DART Looking at Resuming DFW Project

Dallas Area Rapid Transit leaders are reviewing a new long-term financial plan that could mean rail service to Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport after all.

The largest municipal rail system in Texas in June cited the economy in announcing an indefinite delay of the airport service.

But a DART statement Tuesday said the final section of the Orange Line light rail project to the airport and a Blue Line extension to the University of North Texas-Dallas campus could be preserved. Federal funds, possible cost savings and increased debt could support the projects.

The DART board of directors voted to send a draft fiscal 2011 budget and updated 20-year financial plan to affected cities.

DART serves Dallas and a dozen surrounding cities in a 700-square-mile service area.
