Public meetings to introduce ZIP Rail planning study between Rochester and Twin Cities set for June 3-6

ST. PAUL, Minn. - The public is invited to attend one of three open house meetings to learn about the planning study for the proposed high-speed passenger rail service between Rochester and the Twin Cities Metro area.

All meetings will occur from 5-7 p.m. with a formal presentation at 5:30 p.m. at the following locations:

• Rochester - Monday, June 3, at Rochester Community & Technical College Heintz Commons Area, 851 30th Ave. SE, Rochester

Participants will receive information and updates about the study schedule, purpose and initial route options. Public feedback will influence future study decisions. It will also help the study partners prepare the Tier 1 environmental impact statement required by the Federal Railroad Administration. The Tier 1 EIS will evaluate all potential passenger rail alternatives for the Rochester-Twin Cities high-speed passenger rail corridor.

Representatives from the Olmsted County Regional Railroad Authority and the Minnesota Department of Transportation will be available to answer questions and discuss the study.
