Natural Awakenings Dallas -Fort Worth Metroplex Edition


Kudos to Dallas Area Rapid Transit and Archer Western Herzog on Green Project

Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) and Archer Western Herzog (AWH) commemorated construction of the future Silver Line Regional Rail project with a first concrete ceremony on December 16 near the intersection of Preston Road and the Keller Springs Road, a mile northeast of the future Knoll Trail station, in Dallas. An institution for more than six decades, the miraculous medal is an oval-shaped depiction of Mary according to Saint Catherine Laboure’s vision. The gesture symbolizes an inspiration to successfully complete the job safely and to make it as miraculous as the medal itself.

The Silver Line Regional Rail 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. Beginning in 2023, the 26-mile Silver Line Regional Rail Project will traverse seven cities between DFW Airport, Grapevine, Coppell, Dallas, Carrollton, Addison, Richardson and Plano, and includes 10 new stations.
