Lodi News-Sentinel - - Page Two - — News-Sen­tinel staff

SACRA­MENTO — Cal­trans re­leased the pub­lic draft of the Cal­i­for­nia State Rail Plan on Thurs­day. The plan out­lines a new frame­work for Cal­i­for­nia’s rail net­work and sets state pri­or­i­ties on rail in­vest­ments for the next 20 years, with a fo­cus on mul­ti­modal and com­mu­nity con­nec­tions.

The new plan in­cludes strate­gic in­vest­ments in faster and more fre­quent ser­vice, as well as cus­tomer-friendly con­nec­tions with ride share lots, bus ser­vice, and cy­cling and walk­ing paths. The plan also tack­les in­te­grated tick­et­ing and trip plan­ning, and in­creased re­li­a­bil­ity of travel in con­gested cor­ri­dors.

The project web­site at www.cal­i­for­ni­as­tat­erailplan.co m pro­vides the lat­est in­for­ma­tion, in­clud­ing the draft plan, and vis­i­tors can join the project email list to re­ceive fu­ture no­ti­fi­ca­tions and up­dates.

Cal­trans is seek­ing pub­lic in­put on the new plan. The pub­lic com­ment pe­riod ends Dec. 11. The pub­lic can find con­tact in­for­ma­tion on the web­site.

A pub­lic work­shop will be from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. Nov. 7 at the Tsakopou­los Li­brary, 828 I St., Sacra­mento; or ci­ti­zens may sign up for a free statewide we­bi­nar from noon to 1:30 p.m. Dec. 6.
