About the State Rail Plan
The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) has issued the final 2018 State Rail Plan. The plan outlines the Commonwealth’s long-term plan for the statewide rail system.
To meet Federal Railroad Administration requirements, the 2018 State Rail Plan provides an overview of:
- The existing rail system
- The system’s overall role in the transportation network
- How the system is financed
- Near term priorities
- A long-term investment strategy
The final State Rail Plan is now available on the documents page. There is a new chapter, Chapter 6, which details the public engagement effort and summarizes the updates to the plan from the draft version.
