DART is kicking off Phase II of its Downtown Dallas Transit Improvements Study, referred to as D2, at a public meeting, scheduled February 13, 2013. The D2 study is intended to consider alignments for the second light rail line through Downtown Dallas.

Phase I concluded with completion of an Alternatives Analysis/Draft Environmental Impact Statement (AA/DEIS) and a related public hearing and comment period. Phase II builds on the original effort. In response to comments received, the study team has been developing new alternatives and revising Phase I alternatives.

The meeting will begin with an hour-long open house, followed by a formal presentation. Alternatives and refinements that are being considered for detailed evaluation will be presented. Additionally, the study team will review how the Phase II effort is being coordinated with other relevant transportation projects and
recently completed downtown plans. A comment-and-question period will follow the presentation.

The metting will be held on Wednesday, February 13, 2013b at the
DART Headquarters Board Room 1401 Pacific Avenue Dallas, Texas 75202 (at Akard Station). Open House will be at 5:00 p.m. Meeting will be from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. MAPSCO 45k
