Have an opinion about the state’s passenger and freight rail system?
There will be an open house on the Statewide Rail Transportation Plan, 9-11 a.m. Tuesday at the city of Colorado Springs’ Transit Services Division, 1015 Transit Drive.
The public can comment on the draft plan, which will be released in January and propose methods of improving the rail system and how to pay for it.
Six open houses have been held in other cities around the state. Tuesday’s event was added because local transportation officials complained to the Colorado Department of Transportation, about why the state’s most populous county wasn’t designated as a location for an open house on the issue.
