The Economic Value of Investment in Freight Transportation: Missouri Rail (Siding)

As part of the effort to increase efficiencies for both the Amtrak passenger train and the Union Pacific commercial shipping trains, the Missouri Department of Transportation has chosen to extend rail sidings in two areas along the Union Pacific KC-STL line. These sidings were chosen based on a marginal cost to benefit analysis from a previous MoDOT study entitled “Missouri Freight and Passenger Rail Capacity Analysis.” Investment for the two projects will cost an estimated $12 million, split between Missouri dedicated funds and federal grant funding.
