The Michigan Railroad Plan, Phase I, was prepared in compliance with the Regional Rail Reorganization Act of 1973 and includes input from railroads, shippers, labor, regional planners, local and State governments and individuals. The peninsular geography of the state is claimed to place special emphasis on railroads as links in social well-being of citizens. The publication explains Michigan's position on railroads, describes the responsibility of the Michigan Department of State Highways and Transportation, gives a perspective of Michigan railroad planning and public participation, and concludes with an explanation of the planning process.
