Advocacy Alert: State of Missouri reconsidering Rock Island Trail | PedNet Coalition

Headlines are quick hits from media outlets from Missouri and around the world. Follow the headline link for the full story. The source of this headline says:

At the end of 2016, Governor Nixon announced that a 144-mile stretch of the former Rock Island rail line was on track for transfer to the State of Missouri by the end of 2017, to be developed into the Rock Island Trail.

Now state officials under Governor Greitens are reconsidering whether to accept the planned donation of the rail corridor by Ameren.

The Department of Natural Resources is asking for comments about the Rock Island Trail. We are asking all trail supporters to take a couple of minutes to complete the survey at the link below. Your input will help us let the Governor know there is strong support for the trail.

Please share your support of the Rock Island Trail through this quick Department of Natural Resources survey.
