Wisconsin Rail Plan 2050 is the statewide long-range rail transportation plan. Wisconsin Rail Plan 2050 focuses on freight rail, rail crossing safety, and passenger rail, through the year 2050. The Rail Plan supports WisDOT's vision for Wisconsin’s transportation system, as identified in Connect 2050:
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) envisions an integrated multimodal transportation system that maximizes the safe and efficient movement of people and products throughout the state, enhancing economic productivity and the quality of Wisconsin’s communities while minimizing impacts to the natural environment.
The Wisconsin Rail Plan 2050 includes policies for railroad crossings, freight rail, Wisconsin’s state-owned rail system, long distance passenger rail, intercity rail, and commuter rail. The plan discusses rail data trends, existing and possible future service levels, rail system conditions, and commodity freight movements. Future rail-related improvements or plans are outlined in a user-friendly format.
