After several weeks of testing, TEXRail will start its regular operation schedule, including Quiet Zones (no train horns), starting January 10.
The 27-mile commuter rail line will connect Fort Worth to Grapevine with service to DFW Airport. The line runs seven days a week for roughly 21 hours a day, with the trains reaching top speeds of 70 miles per hour. The route, which skirts Southlake at the SH 26 intersections of Brumlow Avenue and Kimball Avenue, will start service with at least 42 trains a day.
“With that many trains running through the area daily, and the likelihood of more in the future, drivers need to be aware of the potential impact the trains will have at these intersections, particularly at Brumlow Avenue and Ira E. Woods Avenue,” said Assistant Police Chief Ashleigh Casey. “Speeding drivers are still an issue on Brumlow, so we are asking people to slow down and be aware that the train crossing will be in use a lot more than it has been in the past.”
