BOSTON (AP) - Federal officials plan to host a series of public meetings in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island and elsewhere to craft plans for future passenger rail investments in the Northeast Corridor.
The Federal Railroad Administration says the meetings are opportunities for the public to contribute their thoughts on alternatives for future Northeast Corridor rail service.
The public meetings will enable people living along the route to learn more about the so-called Northeast Corridor FUTURE. The initiative will 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.
The first of nine meetings will be held in Boston on Monday; followed by New Haven, Conn., on Tuesday; and end in Providence, R.I., on Aug. 22.
