LIMA — The public will get a chance to examine some of the ins-and-outs of the proposed passenger rail system running from Columbus to Chicago during four public meetings set up by the Northern Indiana Passenger Rail Association.
The proposed route would provide high-quality passenger rail connections to 100 Midwest cities through a regional rail network. Initial plans are for trains to travel at a maximum speed of approximately 79 miles per hour and eventually travel at 110 miles per hour.
Lima’s public meeting will take place 5:30-7:30 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 23, at the Lima Municipal Center, 50 Town Square. After the brief presentation, project experts and local representatives will be available with presentation boards set up throughout the room to answer questions and take comments in an open house format.
Other meetings will be hosted later this week in the Indiana cities of Fort Wayne, Warsaw and Valparaiso.
