rail-plan-meeting-january-2018-jpgMassDOT is working on the State Rail Plan which is an update to the 2010 State Rail Plan. The plan will document the state rail system and planned improvements, and outline the Commonwealth’s 20-year vision and four year plan for the statewide rail system.

A public meeting to review the plan and respond to questions about the plan update has been scheduled as follows:

Monday, January 29, 6 PM to 7:30 PM, Worcester Regional Transit Authority, 60 Foster Street

The State Rail Plan will comply with Federal Railroad Administration mandates for states to develop individual rail plans using a six-chapter format.

Each plan must provide an overview of:

  • The existing rail system
  • The system’s overall role in the transportation network
  • How the system is financed
  • Documentation of any coordination for developing the plan

All meeting locations are accessible to people with disabilities. Persons who would like to request any language (non-English) interpretation assistance, American Sign Language interpreters, assistive listening devices, handouts in alternative formats, or information on the meeting should contact: Jessica Ortiz by email or by phone (917) 433-7440.
