Big Money Grants for Train Improvements - Paycheck

Big Money Grants for Train Improvements

A joint Wisconsin-Minnesota passenger rail project was chosen to receive a $31.8 million federal grant! This means that the Twin Cities-Milwaukee-Chicago (TCMC) passenger rail project will have funding for necessary railroad improvements.

This project, which started in 2012, will add an extra daily roundtrip between the Twin Cities, La Crosse, Milwaukee, Chicago and points in between along Amtrak's Empire Builder route. 

The expanded service provides a better connection among economic hubs in the Midwest and the Twin Cities, La Crosse, Milwaukee and Chicago. 

Plus, it will have better connection service for residents in the many rural communities with increased travel options with rural better reliability and on-time performance. It's also going to create new jobs and generate economic growth. This should be a big win for our state!
