A Vision for the Future of the Northeast Corridor
NEC FUTURE is a comprehensive planning effort to define, evaluate, and prioritise future investments in the Northeast Corridor (NEC), from Washington, D.C., to Boston.
The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) launched NEC FUTURE in February 2012 to consider the role of rail passenger service in the context of current and future transportation demands. Through the NEC FUTURE program, the FRA will determine a long-term vision and investment program for the NEC, and complete a Tier 1 Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and Service Development Plan (SDP) in support of that vision.
