Oregon Passenger Rail Project - September 13 Open House
The project is studying options for improved passenger rail service between the Columbia River in Portland and the Eugene-Springfield area. This 125-mile segment is part of the federally-designated Pacific Northwest Rail Corridor. ODOT is leading an environmental review process that will inform a number of important decisions, including selection of the general rail alignment and communities where stations will be located. The project will also determine several service characteristics, such as the number of daily trips, travel time objectives, and the technologies to be used.
