Dallas — Possible Connector Routes

August 2016

A Dallas Morning News story discussed how the Uptown area can be linked to the Bishop Arts District in Oak Cliff across the Houston Street Viaduct over the Trinity River (which is a wire free segment for the Brookville dual-mode streetcars).

City officials and Dallas Area Rapid Transit want to connect Uptown to Oak Cliff through the central business district. The city has proposed a route that would run from an already planned extension of the existing Oak Cliff modern streetcar line up Lamar Street, across Main Street and up St. Paul and Olive streets to connect into the M-Line heritage trolley line.

But the council's transportation committee was to be presented with four other options. According to city documents, costs for three of those would range from $46.9 million to $54.3 million.
