Texas Central Railway

The Texas Central Railway project has recently begun to schedule informational open-house meetings throughout affected regions of the expected construction corridor. Progress has been made in recent months on the project, which is still in the design and planning stage. Substantive roadblocks remain for the project prior to it proceeding to the construction phase, with issues such as securing funding and acquiring necessary Right-of-Way from private landowners.
