Dallas Streetcar Line May Expand

The proposed streetcar line from Union Station to North Oak Cliff may soon be getting a $30.87 million boost from the North Central Texas Council of Governments, documents indicate.

According to a presentation slated to be given Thursday, NCTCOG’s Regional Transportation Council could reallocate $30.87 million from a shelved Love Field project to the Dallas streetcar project. Those funds would allow the streetcar line to expand: to the Zang/Davis intersection in the south, and to the Dallas Convention Center in the north. The current 1.6-mile route is slated for construction this year, funded largely by a federal TIGER grant.

Dallas City Council input is also being sought. Jump for the full presentation:
