MDOT seeks comments on State Rail Plan

The Michigan Department of Transportation is holding a series of six public meetings across the state to present the draft State Rail Plan and ask the public to weigh-in with comments. The public meetings will give people an opportunity to review the draft document, ask questions and provide input before the plan is finalized. The meetings will also provide an opportunity to learn about the current rail system and future trends, rail funding challenges and opportunities, and investment scenarios that will inform state policymakers.
