Public Hearing Plans To Bring Rail Service Back To Fort Wayne

Last updated on Friday, July 10, 2009

(FORT WAYNE) - A public hearing was held Thursday on plans to bring passenger rail service back to the city of Fort Wayne.

The Indiana Department of Transportation has announced a multi-million dollar proposal that includes plans for a route connecting Chicago to Fort Wayne to Toledo.

INDOT officials say they will be submitting the proposal as part of a pre-application bid.

If the proposal gets approval from the federal government, it would fund studies to see if the idea is feasible.
