Colorado moves toward Front Range rail study

Posted: Updated:

DENVER (AP) - A plan to explore passenger rail service along Interstate 25 in Colorado is closer to reality.

The state House voted Tuesday to order a report on the feasibility of Front Range rail service by the end of the year. The study is part of a bill to extend the work of an existing panel looking at the Southwest Chief. That's an Amtrak line that runs through southern Colorado.

The measure has already cleared the Senate. The two chambers now must reconcile differences before the measure heads to the governor.

Sponsors say Colorado should explore options for expanded rail service as the population increases.
