Description:

The U.S. Department of Transportation’s (USDOT) Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) and the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) are preparing a Tier 1 Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to evaluate options for improved intercity passenger rail service along the approximately 130-mile segment of the federally designated Pacific Northwest Rail Corridor from the Eugene-Springfield urban area to the Washington state line at the Columbia River in Portland. This environmental review will help ODOT and FRA make decisions such as selecting the general rail alignment and communities where stations would be located and determining service characteristics, such as the number of daily trips, travel time objectives, and the technologies to be used.
