Could Eau Claire be on the rails for Amtrack service? There was a meeting last night at the Chippewa Valley Technical College to talk about a proposed rail line to Minneapolis. The push is part of a larger, statewide effort to return Amtrak service throughout Wisconsin. Supporters hope to get some of the billions of dollars that the federal government has set aside for Amtrak service in the new infrastructure plan.
Don’t pack your bags quite yet… If Wisconsin is chosen by the feds, it will be years however before Eau Claire or other cities will see new service.
