Six Open Houses set for September
SALEM – ODOT is beginning a study to improve passenger rail service between Portland and Eugene- Springfield. The study will help decide on a general passenger rail route and station locations, and evaluate options for train frequency, trip time, and improving on-time performance.
The needs and concerns of Oregon citizens are a key driver of the Oregon Passenger Rail study. ODOT is holding six scoping open houses to give the public an opportunity to learn more about this project and to help identify issues and a range of passenger rail route alternatives. The public is also invited to participate in an online open house between Sept. 6 and Sept. 23, 2012 at www.OregonPassengerRail.org.
The project is currently in the “scoping phase” – an early step in the process to identify issues to be addressed. Comments are encouraged throughout the study; however comments must be received by October 31, 2012 to be considered as part of scoping.
All meetings run from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and free child care will be provided.
