imagesThis post is made available to inform the public regarding a rail line which is proposed to run through the West, North and Northeast of Town lands. The Town will update this post whenever information becomes available. It is important to mention that the Town has not yet been formally or informally contacted by the development company responsible for this proposed route. All information available to the Town at this point is available on the project developer’s webpage and a citizen driven page.

A previous proposed route for this project had been proposed before in eastern Rock County in the vicinity of Clinton. There are many articles available online using a simple Google search.

On Wednesday, November 30, 2016 at 6:30 pm Sen. Janis Ringhand and Rep. Mark Spreitzer will hold a listening session on the proposed Great Lakes Basin Transportation rail line at the Beloit Turner Auditorium, 1237 Inman Parkway, Beloit WI 53511.
