Buses outside of the LBJ loop are replacing DART rail through end of service Thursday night, but they are impacted by road conditions and may experience delays. Officials with DART say they are “evaluating” service plans for Friday morning.
Things with the transit agency are much better than they were Wednesday night though. DART had to completely suspend service outside of the 635 loop and ice on overhead power lines caused sparks to fly from trains. Some stations lost power entirely, stranding some passengers.READ MORE: 50K Veterans Impacted By 2-Week Closure Of Fort Worth VA Clinic Due To Burst Pipe Damage
Things are also running better at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport. Airlines there cancelled more than 600 arriving and departing flights Thursday. Most of the cancellations happened before crews had a chance to clear runways and start to de-ice planes.
Since the Irregular Operations Plan is in effect until midnight, the airport is accommodating passengers by keeping restaurants and shops open until the last flights arrived and departed.MORE NEWS: FEMA COVID-19 Vaccine Site Opens At Globe Life Field In Arlington
