Fort Worth to Airport Rail Connection Collects $500 Million in Federal Funding
Julieta Chiquillo reports: "Trains taking passengers from Fort Worth to DFW International Airport could be in motion by 2018, now that the federal government has pledged to pay for nearly half of the $1 billion rail line."
"This month, the Federal Transit Administration signed an agreement with the Fort Worth Transportation Authority, or The T, to provide a $499 million grant for the TEX Rail project," adds Chiquillo.
The rail line is planned to span 27 miles, with nine stops between Fort Worth and the DFW Airport, including stops in North Richland Hills and Grapevine.
