Construction operations for the DART Silver Line are ongoing, and a portion of Mockingbird Lane is temporarily closed to allow crews to safely complete railroad crossing work. Crews are also expected to begin working in a portion of S Belt Line Road to install bridge beams in the coming weeks. 

S Belt Line Road Closure & Construction Activity

The bridge beam installation and overnight road closure scheduled to begin along S Belt Line Road from Southwestern to Sanders Loop has been postponed. 

Mockingbird Lane Closure

Work on the railroad crossing at Mockingbird Lane and S Belt Line Road began Monday, February 27. The southbound lane of Mockingbird Lane is closed. Southbound traffic has been detoured around the construction zone. 

Once work on the southbound side is completed, crews will close the northbound lane. Northbound traffic will be detoured around the construction zone. 

While the City of Coppell is not a participant in the transit system, DART is constructing a Silver Line station in neighboring Cypress Waters. The 26-mile Silver Line will extend from DFW Airport to Shiloh Road in Plano and traverse seven cities, including Coppell. The Silver Line will provide passenger rail connections and service that will improve mobility, accessibility, and system linkages to major employment, population, and activity centers in the DFW metroplex. The project is expected to be completed in 2026.
