Gloucester County to use state DOT grant to create ‘snapshot’ of passenger rail line

    Gloucester County officials are planning to use a $100,000 grant from the New Jersey Department of Transportation to create a “snapshot” of what a passenger rail line might look like running through the area.

    The Gloucester County Times reports county freeholders passed a resolution to accept the funds, which will go towards a study, focusing on how the rail line could function in each community.

    According to the Gloucester County Times, freeholders have hired the Melvin Design Group to aid in preparing the study, which is expected to be completed in June.
