Posted by Transit Action Network on April 6, 2012

MoDOT is about to finalize a statewide plan for rail service, both passenger and freight, and is holding another round of open house meetings to get comments. The Missouri State Rail Plan FINAL DRAFT, reflects  previous input from citizens, freight railroads operating in Missouri, shippers, and economic development and transportation agencies.
