METRO Next - 2040 Vision


Recommended Posts

has anyone heard anything about the courthouse extension for the green/purple line? it seemed like the most straight-forward project in METRONEXT and... yet... not a peep, even when they had a whole ass year to rip up the courthouse parking lot if need be.

How do you keep a rail in place if you are tunneling underneath it at this width?

Would they build a temporary bridge over the chasm to keep it going?

I just don't understand how they would keep it open if the first thing is to start removing utilities and dirt and the last thing is the build the new track, you know?

I've seen underpasses built under active rail lines before, with minimal service interruption.  I would assume (hope?) that TxDOT would do the same here.
