Established and incorporated in the Nevada Department of Transportation Planning Division, the Rail Planning Section is responsible for helping ensure that Nevada's freight and passenger rail infrastructure and services address the transportation needs of the state and improve the safety for the citizens of Nevada.
NDOT prepares and administers the State Rail Plan. This plan provides a comprehensive planning framework, consistent with state goals and objectives for quality of life, safety, and environmental/economic sustainability. It identifies the needs and opportunities for rail infrastructure in the state, and evaluates and prioritizes projects for inclusion in the overall state transportation improvement program. The State Rail Plan also complies with federal requirements for funding eligibility and integration into the overall federal rail program.
