Fort Worth's T Participates in Tower 55 Project

The Fort Worth (TX) Transportation Authority (The T) was among the stakeholders that participated in recent ceremonies commemorating the completion of the $104 million Tower 55 project, an intersection of north-south and east-west freight rail tracks used by BNSF Railway and Union Pacific Railroad. According to Michael Morris, transportation director for the North Central Texas Council of Governments, The T loaned $2.5 million to Tower 55 so the project could beat a deadline to qualify for a federal grant; without the loan, Tower 55 would not have been “shovel-ready” and likely would have been passed over for the grant. FRA Administrator Joseph Szabo holds the scissors and T President Paul Ballard is at far right.
