City Council Endorses Downtown DART Subway Alignment

This is where the city would like to see the D2 go through.

The City Council this morning gave the nod to the Victory-Commerce-Swiss alignment of DART’s D2 project, the long-and-still-awaited subway line that will run through downtown Dallas. Let’s show, rather than tell:

Councilmembers also approved a preferred alignment for a new streetcar line, along Elm and Commerce. Here’s the Elm-Commerce alignment:

The Young and Main alignments, respectively, remain under consideration if things don’t shake out with the Elm-Commerce line.

Engineering studies, financing, and the vagaries of time stand between those dotted lines on a map and an actual subway line, but if everything miraculously proceeds as planned, expect the streetcar project to be finished by 2023, the D2 subway by 2024.
