Here's a map featuring the proposed corridor enhancements. Scroll down to watch Solutionary Rail Lead, Bill Moyer's presentation of our latest research and proposal for rail transportation resilience in the Lower Snake River region.
In early September 2023, Solutionary Rail convened a technical retreat in Pullman, WA to refine our rail transportation proposal for SE WA. Our team included a rail planner, wheat farmer, rail bridge engineer, locomotive engineer, shortline railroad owner, LSR freight expert, and others. They worked hard to incorporate what we heard from stakeholders and the of the past year. The outcome is a yet more elegant path forward that achieves the critical transportation goals for connectivity, capacity and competition. We are calling it the Rosalia to Pasco Shortline Access Rail Corridor.
Though our previous recommendations remain valid and relevant, this targeted proposal is built upon that foundation. This proposal provides focus and guidance for immediate action. We hope that you will watch the video above, check out the new slidedeck and share both with others. View DRAFT proviso for 2024 Legislative session HERE
