Plano receives 16,000 feet of additional rail for DART Silver Line construction

Sixteen thousand feet of rail — 200 sections, each one 80 feet long — recently arrived in Plano for DART’s Silver.

The rails were delivered Dec. 18 on a special train from Steel Dynamics of Indiana to an area east of Shiloh Road, according to the city.

The shipment is in addition to 1,600-foot sections of rail that were delivered in November.

Seriously, lol.
But, meanwhile e.g. Addison, pops in the FAA files for a ridiculous number of requests for very small height requests for construction of the line. So, maybe the News can have something to go with as a change-up.
