DCTA breaks ground on Hebron station

Posted on March 27, 2009

[IMAGE]Hebron-full.jpg[/IMAGE]On Friday, the Denton County Transit Authority (DCTA) broke ground on the Hebron Station of the A-Train rail line through Denton County.

The A-train project, a central element of DCTA’s service plan, includes single-phase construction of 21 miles of regional rail, five rail stations, a bicycle/pedestrian trail, and a regional rail operations and maintenance facility. The immediate objective of the project is to have full service between Denton and Carrollton to interface with Dallas Area Rapid Transit’s (DART) light rail system by December 2010. The timing will coincide with DART’s opening of the northern section of its Green Line and will complete a 50-mile segment of regional passenger rail that is detailed in the Mobility 2030 plan. 

"Train travel was a big part of Lewisville’s deep historical roots, and through the DCTA, train travel will be a big part of Lewisville’s bright future. This is an exciting day for DCTA, the entire Lewisville community and for me personally as we watch a far-reaching vision start becoming a reality that we all can enjoy,” said Lewisville Mayor Gene Carey.
