3:26 PM EDT on May 17, 2010

As it works to finalize a National Rail Plan that could prove pivotal in securing dedicated long-term funding for high-speed rail, the U.S. DOT is soliciting public feedback at five meetings in the coming weeks.

The first public meeting will be held Wednesday in Kansas City, followed by a Thursday meeting in Atlanta, according to a release sent today by the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA). Rail officials will stop in New York City on May 26, Salt Lake City on June 3, and Portland on June 4. More information, including locations for each meeting, is available on the agency's website.
