Understand/ Rail Plan

The 2011 Michigan State Rail Plan was published after the passage of the Passenger Rail Investment and Improvement Act (PRIIA) of 2008 but before the U.S. Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) issued its State Rail Plan Guidance in 2013. PRIIA established minimum content for state rail plans, which consisted of twelve elements.

The Michigan Mobility 2045 Plan is the first of its kind to incorporate not only an overall vision of the state's transportation system, but to include two additional federally required documents: the State Rail Plan and the State Freight Plan. These documents, combined into one, will provide a streamlined vision of the transportation future in Michigan across all modes.
