ABOUT THE PLAN

​​The Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) is updating the Statewide Rail Plan (SRP). When completed, the SRP will serve as the foundation for federal funding requests to maintain and improve Wyoming’s railroads.

 

The SRP will address a wide spectrum of topics, including passenger rail service objectives and a long-range investment program for freight and passenger rail infrastructure. This 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, expand economic development opportunities and improve network safety and efficiency.

Once completed, the SRP will be able to satisfy areas of interest for rail expansion, including:

-

Long-term rail service and investment needs

-

Summary of passenger rail

-

New or enhanced rail access and capacity

-

Financing rail improvements

-

Intermodal connectivity and development

-

Rail safety and security

-

Performance of freight and passenger rail service
