DART approves Carrollton street repairs
The Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) board has approved funding a Carrollton street repair project along the BNSF corridor between the city's northern border and Josey Lane.
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 eleven 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.
