Silver Line Railway at Far North Dallas in 2024

As the majority of North Dallas was developed in the late 20th century, the primary mode of local transportation is the automobile and the area has a low density compared with neighborhoods built in the early 20th century. Efforts made by the City of Dallas and Dallas Area Rapid Transit to increase the availability of alternative modes of transportation received varying degrees of support from Far North Dallas residents. Plans to build a commuter or light rail line through the Far North Dallas area along the “Cotton Belt” (the St. Louis Southwestern Railway) met opposition from residents and local organizations in the early 2000s.

In 2019, construction began on the railway plan, now called the Silver Line. Due to delays from the COVID-19 Pandemic, the railway is expected to be completed sometime in 2024.
