TEX Rail Environmental Assessment released for review

In Texas, the TEX Rail Environmental Assessment (EA) document is available for review, which presents an environmental analysis of changes to the project, since the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) was completed.

The project is being undertaken by the Fort Worth Transportation Authority (T) as the local sponsor and the Federal Transit Administration as the federal sponsor. The T is seeking public review and comment on the changes documented in the EA.

The EA is available for public review online at

The TEX Rail project, formerly known as the Southwest-to-Northeast Rail Corridor, is a proposed 37-mile commuter rail line that would carry passengers from southwest Fort Worth, through downtown Fort Worth, on to Grapevine and into the north end of Dallas Fort Worth Airport.
