DART Hidden Ridge Station Opens in Irving

The Hidden Ridge station in Irving began service along the Orange Line on Monday, April 12.  The station is located in Meadow Creek Drive, between the North Lake College and Irving Convention Center stations.  The new station will serve the $1.5 billion Hidden Ridge mixed-use development.

Constructed by Archer Western Construction with Jacobs serving as the design consultant, DART’s Hidden Ridge Station will offer amenities such as a 136-space parking lot; six bus bays for making connections and transfers; five kiss-and-ride spaces for a convenient drop-off and pickup, and a short trip to DFW Airport.

As part of a 2018 agreement, the city of Irving committed to funding station construction, originally deferred during Orange Line construction. A grant from the North Central Texas Council of Governments covered the most of the cost.

As with all DART stations, including an Art and Design Program that reflects the community it serves is important in the creation of each DART station. Marty Ray, a ceramic artist and former Professor Emerita of Art at Dallas College-North Lake Campus, is responsible for the artwork at Hidden Ridge Station. Since the station is located on Carpenter Ranch, once the homestead of Las Colinas founder Ben Carpenter, the art plays off the land’s history. The installation also reflects the natural elements of the land, wildlife, and nearby creek.

Note: Station parking lot under construction, no parking allowed until further notice. Pick up and drop off at east side of station, please do not walk through the parking lot. Park and Ride available at North Lake College Station.
