Trinity Mills DART Station

Carrollton, Texas

The concept for this station involved the history of the former town of Trinity Mills as the local mill for grain and gravel. Arist drawings of grain were inscribed into the cast stone columns.  The Elm Fork of the Trinity River (represented by the undulating graphic in the pavement) was prominent in the numerous cycles of rebirth the area of Trinity Mills has experienced.  Paving design continues into the parking lot walkway and features a mill wheel “hub” formed from stained concrete slabs and landscape beds.  This element marks the intersection of the station and the adjacent boulevard, a central focal point of future transit-oriented development.
