ADOT surveying public on Phoenix-to-Tucson rail

Firefighters stand outside a house where they are retrieving personal belongings for its owner, in Pretare, near Arquata del Tronto, central Italy, Monday, Aug. 29, 2016. With thousands left homeless after Wednesday's earthquake, authorities are debating how to provide warmer, sturdier housing for them besides the rows of emergency blue tents set up in the Apennine Mountains, where even summer nights can get chilly.

A passenger rail that would connect Phoenix and Tucson.

Laura Douglas with the Arizona Department of Transportation has been studying the possibility for two years, and now they want to know what you think.

“This week the Arizona Department of Transportation kicks off a series of public out-reach events, and also online participation,” she said, “so that we can get input on our three potential rail-routes.”

ADOT wants to know how the public feels about where it should go, how it should be paid for, and, of course whether or not it should even be built at all.

“This is another opportunity for the public to provide their input, about how we should move forward,” she said. “And what alternatives most appeal to them.”
