A Statewide Rail Plan is being developed by WYDOT and the Wyoming Business Council, with help from agencies and the public, to provide direction for future freight and passenger rail transportation policy in Wyoming.
The plan will enable WYDOT to implement a broad approach to statewide planning that will integrate passenger and freight rail elements into the larger Statewide Long Range Transportation Plan.
Rail infrastructure improvements are not funded by WYDOT, but the plan will expand economic development opportunities for grants and public-private partnerships and improve network safety and efficiency.
Public input is necessary for development of a plan that accurately reflects the current needs and future opportunities for rail and rail-related economic development in Wyoming. You can provide comments for consideration in the plan by taking an online survey.
