Farmers Branch Partnering With Neighbors on Potential Rail Line

This is exciting. Check it out. Another rail line that would run straight through Farmers Branch.

From the article:

For Farmers Branch, the line would serve a just-announced 300-acre retail, commercial and residential development to be built in the Mercer Crossing area, near interstates 35E and 635 and the Bush Turnpike. The first phase will be a Mediterranean-inspired town center with plazas, gazebos, parks, fountains and walking trails around a lake.

"We're going to be having thousands of people living and working in that area," City Manager Gary Greer said. "If we can provide them with some commuter access, that's going to be helpful to us and to the development."
