Feds to hold meeting in RI on railway investments
PROVIDENCE, R.I.—Federal officials will host a public meeting in Rhode Island to craft plans for future passenger rail investments in the Northeast Corridor.
The Federal Railroad Administration says the meeting is an opportunity for the public to contribute their thoughts on alternatives for future Northeast Corridor rail service.
Wednesday evening's meeting at the Department of Administration building in Providence is the last in a series of public meetings held between Washington and Boston about the so-called Northeast Corridor FUTURE.
The initiative is to develop a framework for passenger rail capacity and service improvement through 2040. It includes a service development plan that focuses on passenger rail service and possible alternatives for the corridor.
