Later this week, MoDOT is hosting a public meeting on a draft of its State Rail Plan. Some of the more interesting project line items that may begin in the next 20 years include:
|Project||Cost (2012 $)||Notes|
|Replacement of Merchant’s Bridge||$150,000,000||Approach funded 2011 ARRA|
|HSR Corridor Planning KC-STL||$10,000,000||FY12-16 STIP|
|Intercity Rail Planning – Other Corridors||$10,000,000||Springfield, St. Joseph, Hannibal|
|New KC-STL 110mph+ Dedicated Corridor||$600,000,000||TBD by HSR PE/NEPA study|
Enhancing passenger rail and improving freight rail access are among the top recommendations included in the new draft State Rail Plan, the Missouri Department of Transportation’s 20-year strategic framework for passenger and freight rail development in Missouri.
The plan reflects input from freight railroads operating in Missouri, shippers, economic and transportation agencies and citizens. MoDOT wants to know what you think. Join us at an upcoming public meeting, or by reviewing the draft plan online at www.morail.org.
