DALLAS -- A long-delayed proposal to establish a TEX Rail commuter line from southwest Fort Worth to Grapevine could again be held up if right-of-way agreements aren't soon reached with three railroads along the route, the nation's top transit official said.
The Fort Worth Transportation Authority is pushing to open TEX Rail by 2016, but construction is expected to cost about $750 million. The commuter rail line would connect the Texas Christian University area, Fort Worth's medical district and downtown to the Stockyards and the north end of Dallas/Fort Worth Airport.
DART owns the longest stretch -- 20 miles, from the Fort Worth Stockyards to the north end of DFW Airport...Fort Worth & Western controls about nine miles from near Interstate 30 and Forest Park Boulevard to the south...Omaha, Neb.-based Union Pacific owns two pieces of track along the TEX Rail line -- one extending about a mile from T&P Station west to the Fort Worth & Western line and another extending about three miles from north of downtown to the Stockyards.
