MDOT seeks public comment on high-speed rail plan
DETROIT – The Michigan Department of Transportation is seeking public comment on an environmental assessment done as part of an effort to upgrade the Detroit-to-Chicago rail line for high-speed service.
The environmental assessment details proposed upgrades to tracks, trains and amenities.
Among the changes, a new station would be built in Troy to replace a station in Birmingham; a new station would be built in Dearborn combining two existing stations; and the Battle Creek station would be overhauled.
A copy of the assessment is available on MDOT's Web site. Comments are due by Oct. 20.
