DART Light Rail

Location: Dallas, TX

In December 2001, McAfee3 began surveying and is continuing to conducting field reviews of the existing DART Light Rail Stations, Transit Stations, and Bus Stations, which include the entire Red Line, Blue Line, Transit Centers, and the Trinity Railway Express. These field reviews will determine existing site conditions and produce the scope of services needed to conduct improvements, art restorations, and architectural elements as needed to each station. These studies will also point out the troubled areas and offer suggestions, as well as highlighting the more notable areas and the positive effects that they have as it pertains to DART and the community.
