Dallas Area Rapid Transit sends word: It's back in action! For the most part:
DART Rail is resuming and all three lines are operating on 30 minute headways. This will continue for the rest of the day. Buses are operating but slowly due to road conditions.
All non-24 hour HOV lanes remain closed.
Trinity Railway Express is operating a regular schedule and will have a special train in service after tonight's Stars game.
At the same time, the Dallas Police Department's Senior Corporal Kevin Janse updates the car-crash leaderboard:
From midnight to 2 p.m. today, Dallas Police Officers have responded to 39 minor accidents and 26 major accidents. An additional 16 accidents were transferred to Dallas Sheriff's Office. While it can't be confirmed that all the accidents were weather related, a good portion of them were single vehicle accidents that spun out on the slick roads. These numbers are below normal for such severe winter conditions; however, the closures of most schools and numerous businesses are believed to be the cause of the low numbers.
