What is the status of the high-speed rail study between Dallas and Fort Worth?

In Sept. 2014, the Federal Railroad Administration initiated the process of evaluating the possibility for a high-speed passenger rail line between Dallas and Fort Worth by publishing a Notice of Intent to prepare an environmental impact statement (EIS) for such a line. Submitted to the Federal Register, this document marks the beginning of the process that will study the feasibility and impacts, and gather public input, of the proposed passenger rail line.

The EIS will examine possible routes for the proposed high-speed passenger rail line while also taking into consideration the potential impacts these possible routes may have on the region’s communities, economy, open spaces, streams, floodplains and wildlife. It also will take into account various federal regulations, including the National Historic Preservation Act, and investigate potential impacts of stations, power facilities and maintenance facilities that would support high-speed rail operations.

Local entities and the public have 90 days to submit written comments on the scope of the EIS. 

What is TxDOT’s role in the Dallas-Houston High-Speed rail project?
The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) and TxDOT are working with the Texas Central Railroad (TCR), a private entity that will develop and fund the environmental study for a proposed high-speed rail between the Dallas and Houston areas. TxDOT will provide technical assistance with study efforts and help coordinate public and stakeholder involvement. Constructing track between Dallas and Houston would cost an estimated $10 billion in private funding, which would come from domestic and international investors.

What are the rules for posting campaign signs?

During campaign season, the landscape blooms with a special kind of flower - the political sign. Unlike wildflowers that are welcome anywhere, putting campaign signs on public lands is illegal. So before you plant that sign, learn the law and keep Texas beautiful.

You Need to Know

1.   It is illegal to place any signs on or within the right of way. This includes posting signs on trees, telephone poles, traffic signs and other objects on the right of way.

2.   Campaign signs along Texas roads can be placed on private property with the owner's permission. Signs must be made of lightweight material and be no larger than 50 square feet.

3.   Campaign signs may be posted as early as 90 days before an election (no earlier) and must be removed within ten days after the election.

4.   Before placing a sign inside of incorporated city limits, check with the city for applicable ordinances.

Sign Removal

If you have placed your sign in the right of way or it's posing a traffic hazard, it will be removed without prior notice. All costs associated with sign removal will be paid by the sign owner.
