KEYWORDS: Draft Texas-Oklahoma Passenger Rail Study Alternatives Analysis Report Appendix D
ABSTRACT: This report builds upon all of the previous major analysis work performed in this corridor, including a range of routing alignments and service-level alternative evaluations covering the entire corridor study area. After the completion of the Route Alternatives Analysis, which included an evaluation of the NEPA Service-level EIS scoping process, 12 initial route alternatives, four in each of the three geographic segments (defined below), were identified that would provide additional or new passenger rail service between Oklahoma City and south Texas. Each initial alternative included both a proposed route, some with minor route options, and two of three possible service-level operating features: conventional (emerging), higher speed rail (regional), or high-speed rail (core express) service.
