Currently in Pre-NEPA and Service Development Planning stages, passenger rail service would provide a much needed additional travel option for Coloradoans living along the highly-congested 180-mile I-25 Corridor. Connecting major population centers and employers, passenger rail will create a transportation backbone that will alleviate projected further congestion issues in the future as well as connect to other transit options along the Front Range.

A 2019 CRISI Grant award will allow the analysis of Southwest Chief Thru-Car Service from La Junta to Colorado Springs and Pueblo for the Amtrak's Southwest Chief long-distance train. This future connection will provide easier access to Colorado's Front Range cities for members of the military, tourism, and health care opportunities, as well as serve as a precursor to future Front Range Passenger Rail service.

Freight benefit is reduces loss of PTC connectivity. Train sheds & nearby bridges inhibit PTC transmissions, causing delays by interfering with PTC initiation for psgr trains departing Portland.

Eugene Maintenance Facility

Identified in State Rail Plan? Yes
Feasibility-level Study Complete? Yes
NEPA Started? No
Total Project Cost: $43,450,413
Federal 80% (unless noted differently): $34,760,330
State, local, private 20% (unless noted differently):  $8,690,082

As the southern terminus of Cascades service it is the ideal location for a facility to help maintain cars and locomotives assigned to the corridor as more service frequencies are added and the rolling stock fleet grows.

Woodburn Siding

NEPA Started? No
Total Project Cost: $4,000,000
Federal 80% (unless noted differently): $3,200,000
State, local, private 20% (unless noted differently):  $800,000

Freight benefit is improved line fluidity. Creates a controlled siding at Woodburn where none now exists; adds another facility for meeting and passing freight & psgr trains. Federal 80%/State, Local, Private 20% shares are for illustrative purposes only and any proposed project shares may differ.

Resolving PTC Variability at Steel Bridge

Total Project Cost: TBD
Federal 80% (unless noted differently): TBD
State, local, private 20% (unless noted differently):  TBD

Freight benefit is reduces loss of PTC connectivity. The metallic bulk of this 100+ years old bridge can interfere with transmission of PTC signals, delaying both psgr & freight trains crossing river.

Salem Yard Power Switches

Total Project Cost: $2,500,000
Federal 80% (unless noted differently): $2,000,000
State, local, private 20% (unless noted differently):  $500,000

Freight benefit is speeds clearing mainline. Salem is homebase for 2 local freights. Powering switches will allow dispatcher to throw switches for entering & leaving mainline, eliminating need for crew person to handle switches manually, saving time and minimizing delay to psgr trains. Federal 80%/State, Local, Private 20% shares are for illustrative purposes only and any proposed project shares may differ.
