The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) will host open houses next month to solicit public comments on preliminary alternatives for an intercity passenger-rail service between Portland, Vancouver, Wash., and the Eugene-Springfield urban area, ODOT officials announced in their fall newsletter.ODOT has been studying potential rail routes and evaluating options for train frequency, trip time and improving on-time performance, the newsletter states. In spring, ODOT used public input to develop five preliminary rail route alternatives.After the open houses — which will be held Nov. 5-7, Nov. 12 and 14 — ODOT will establish the range of alternatives to be further studied prior to publishing a Draft Tier 1 Environmental Impact Statement, according to the newsletter.Full descriptions of the preliminary alternatives are available at www.OregonPassengerRail.org.
