Yuma County Rail Corridor Study

You are here: Yuma County Rail Corridor Study

Project Summary:


This project’s overall purpose is to evaluate if there is interest and supporting economic benefit for a rail and commodity logistics center in the Yuma Region. This study coincides with the recent momentum generated from discussions of a deep sea port at Punta Colonet, Baja California and will include an evaluation on two fronts:

  •   Long‐term opportunities of a major rail line with an inland port option
  •   Short‐term opportunities to identify economic drivers that could sustain short‐rail  options with expansion capabilities in the future
