On Monday, Lewisville City Council passed a resolution in support of Texas Central, a private company that plans to construct a 240-mile high-speed rail route from Houston to Dallas. When completed, the multibillion-dollar route will provide riders a 90-minute trip between the two cities.
The Dallas Regional Mobility Council has asked local mayors to provide statements of support for the train.
The preferred route by the Federal Railroad Administration passes through 10 counties: Dallas, Ellis, Navarro, Freestone, Limestone, Leon, Madison, Grimes, Waller and Harris. The preferred rail route includes plans for three passenger stations: Dallas, Houston and Grimes County.
