Milwaukee – Twin Cities High-Speed Passenger Rail Corridor Program
Quandel provided planning and engineering services for the Milwaukee-Twin Cities corridor including preparing a project work plan, a purpose and need document, attending public involvement meetings, and completing a three tiered Alternatives Analysis of more than 25 possible passenger rail routes between the cities.
Quandel Consultants served as consultant to Minnesota DOT and Wisconsin DOT for the Milwaukee-Twin Cities High- Speed Rail Corridor Program, a proposed 350-mile high-speed passenger rail line between Milwaukee, WI and Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN. Quandel completed an Alternatives Analysis that identified a set of "reasonable and feasible" passenger rail routes to be analyzed in a Tier 1 Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), developed a methodology to reduce the overall universe of alternative rail routes (existing, abandoned, or out-of-service) to a set of reasonable and feasible routes.
