This assessment of streets, sidewalks, and other routes connecting the 28 DART rail stations examined infrastructure that will enhance first/last mile accessibility for pedestrians. The study included detailed evaluations of pedestrian infrastructure needs for corridors within a one-half mile radius of the DART facilities, wherein improvements were identified and ranked as High, Medium, and Low, based on the potential benefit to improve active user access to and from the stations. Estimated construction costs, primarily for new sidewalks and pedestrian safety measures such as crosswalks, signals and phasing for implementation, were developed for each station area. The resulting project deliverables and final reports were provided to DART and each city to be referenced during future project development, helping to improve access and connectivity for residents and workers with the key goal to increase transit ridership.
The Opinions of Probable Construction Costs for all stations are identified in the following table:
