Preserve the PCC rail line between Colfax, WA and Moscow, ID
This petition had 604 supporters
The WSDOT has asked for public commentary regarding the destiny of this rail line. Because we do not know how transportation will evolve as technology and society evolves, it is important to preserve this corridor for future use. WSDOT spent public funds in 2004 to save this rail line from abandonment. Abandonment opens the door for fragmentation of this line making it implausible if not impossible to resurrect. This is a public asset that we can ill-afford to let slip between our fingers. Railbanking is a process that preserves railroad right-of-way for possible return to rail use in the future and allows for interim use as a trail. It is in our collective best interest to railbank rather than to abandon this line and preserve it for future generations.
