Dallas, Texas [date] FC Construction Services has been chosen for the DART Cotton Belt Rail Corridor project providing Background, Screening Testing, and RFID-Badging for the 24 to 36-month long project.
The 26-mile Cotton Belt track will join seven cities across North Texas – Grapevine, Coppell, Dallas, Carrollton, Addison, Richardson and Plano – and connect to the Orange, Green, and Red lines, as well as DART’s TEXRail.
