[ARCHIVED] Road Closures Planned for DART Construction

Construction operations for the DART Silver Line are ongoing, and portions of S. Belt Line Road and Mockingbird Lane will soon be temporarily closed to allow crews to safely complete bridge beam installation and railroad crossing work. 

S. Belt Line Road Closure & Construction Activity

The planned DART installation of bridge beams that would have led to overnight closures on S Belt Line Road from Southwestern Boulevard to Sanders Loop on February 24 has been postponed. The new installation date will be announced once it is available.

Mockingbird Lane Closure

DART crews will be performing work on the railroad crossing at Mockingbird Lane and S. Belt Line Road. Beginning on Monday, February 27, the southbound lane of Mockingbird Lane will be closed. Southbound traffic will be detoured around the construction zone. 

Once work on the southbound side is completed, crews will close the northbound lane. Northbound traffic will be detoured around the construction zone. 

While the City of Coppell is not a participant in the transit system, DART is constructing a Silver Line station in neighboring Cypress Waters. The 26-mile Silver Line will extend from DFW Airport to Shiloh Road in Plano and traverse seven cities, including Coppell. The Silver Line will provide passenger rail connections and service that will improve mobility, accessibility, and system linkages to major employment, population, and activity centers in the DFW metroplex. The project is expected to be completed in 2026.
