INDOTYou are invited to share your vision for the future of freight and passenger rail and participate in the development of your state’s Rail Plan. The public and all rail stakeholders are encouraged to complete a brief online survey at www.in.gov/indot/3588.htm and attend one of three rail planning open houses around the state.

Rail planning open-houses will be held in mid-November. Brief presentations will begin at 5:30 and 6:30 p.m. local time at the dates and locations listed below. Before and after the presentations will be informal, and the public or rail stakeholders may speak with Indiana Department of Transportation rail and consultant staff and complete a paper survey.
