Texas Central: Bullet Train Environmental Lunch & Learn - Dallas

Aug 24 2018 - 11:30am to 1:30pm
Texas Central Office Dallas , TX

The Texas Bullet Train is moving ahead in its design, engineering and pre-construction phases. The high-speed train will connect approximately half the population of Texas including the state’s biggest economic hubs. And will do so in a safe, high-tech and environmentally protective way.

Texas Central is the company building the passenger train between North Texas and Houston.

We are eager to give you the latest news about our work and answer your questions. This update includes information from the Federal Railroad Administration’s recently released Draft Environmental Impact Statement that recognized the train system’s low-impact design and construction principles.

The full environmental fact sheet can be found here and the FRA’s environmental review can be found here https://www.fra.dot.gov/Page/P1078

RSVP by Friday, Aug. 17 to Rebecca Cowle at RCowle@texascentral.com.
