Bullet train coming to Texas

Today, Texas Central Partners announced the design construction firms that will lead a high-speed rail project to connect Dallas and Houston.

Irving-based Fluor Corporation, a Fortune 500 engineering and construction firm and lane construction are set to design and build the railway.

Currently, there is no schedule for the proposed high-speed railway–Tarrant Regional Transportation Council Chairman Bill Meadows estimated that it would be complete “early 2020’s at the earliest.”

The proposed 240 mile railway would take passengers from Dallas to Houston and back in less than 90 minutes each way at speeds of 205 mph.
