Illinois kicks off state rail plan development with new website


The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) has launched a new website to inform stakeholders and the public on development of the state’s new rail plan.

The rail plan will “identify anticipated trends, needs and issues that will affect rail service and demand over the next two or three decades,” IDOT officials said in a prepared statement. “The plan will provide a long-range framework for meeting the various needs of passenger rail and freight services within the state.”

The website includes details on issues to be studied, a schedule of the process, and information on how the general public and stakeholders can participate in the plan.
