The Potential for Mode Conversion to Rail Service in Wisconsin

The team built upon the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation’s study regarding industries that drive the Wisconsin economy, and complemented the efforts of the Wisconsin Central Group and Wisconsin Manufacturers Commerce by geo-locating shippers and determining their proximity to rail access. Outreach was completed to identify the drivers, incentives and barriers to increasing rail access and the resulting economic impact.
