DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) - The first of three public hearings is scheduled on an environmental impact review of proposed passenger rail improvements aimed at speeding traffic through parts of Michigan, Illinois and Indiana.

The hearing is Tuesday at the Dearborn Intermodal Passenger Rail Station in Michigan on the Chicago-Detroit/Pontiac rail corridor.

Hearings in Illinois at Chicago Union Station and in Indiana at the Genesis Convention Center in Gary are scheduled for later in the week. The hearings are being held by the Federal Railroad Administration along with the transportation departments in the three states.

The review covers the proposed project’s purpose and need, identifies reasonable route alternatives and analyzes the potential environmental impacts.
