The Midwest Regional Rail Planning Study


The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) is embarking on a project to explore the potential for a high-performance, multi-state intercity passenger rail network in the Midwest region. The study will build on current rail planning efforts within the twelve states of Illinois, Missouri, Iowa, Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio, Nebraska, Kansas, South Dakota, North Dakota, Indiana, and Minnesota and will explore the potential for a fully integrated passenger rail network linking communities throughout the region.
