Description In 2018, the Washington State Department of Ecology and the Washington State Utilities and Transportation Commission sought an update and expansion of the rail assessment and technical research presented in the 2014 study. The 2020 Washington Rail Transportation Safety Study offers state agencies more insight and a better understanding of railroad operations. This may allow the State to identify and develop broad planning measures that look beyond —but do not conflict with — existing laws and regulations in an effort to provide public agencies, tribes, and stakeholders with data and technical information to address issues of significant importance to rail transport.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
