North Dakota agencies updating statewide railroad plan

BISMARCK, N.D. — North Dakota officials are working to update a statewide rail plan for passenger and freight service.

Six agencies led by the state Transportation Department are crafting the plan this fall that is aimed at improving safety and service.

The last statewide rail plan was completed in 2007.

The updated plan will review such things as crossings, train speeds, and freight and passenger demand.
