DART Board approves Carrollton street repairs

March 31, 2020

Funding for the Carrollton Street repair projet along the BNSF Corridor between the city of Carrollton's northern board and Josey Lane has been approved by the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) Board. 

A Street Repair Policy, approved in 1994 and updated in 1997 and 2016, permits DART to cooperate with service area cities to accomplish needed repairs.

Carrollton chose to seek reimbursement for a Rail Crossing/Safety Quiet Zone project covering 11 locations that includes automatic gates with bells, wayside flashers, special medians, constant warning devices at street crossings and repaving of streets approaching the rail crossings including sidewalks and ADA ramps.

While the project has a total cost of $1.4 million, the project reimbursement by DART will be $449,455. Carrollton will be responsible for procuring, constructing, supervising, inspecting and making any future changes to the plans necessary to complete the project.
