The West Virginia Department of Transportation's State Rail Authority will hold the next two of eight public information meetings to discuss the Authority's State Rail Plan next week.

The informational meetings offer participants an opportunity to learn about the plan, to ask questions and to state their views and opinions for consideration in the development of the plan.

All meetings will take place from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Formal presentations at 6 p.m. will be followed by an opportunity for public comment in a workshop-style setting.

The next two public meetings will take place on Tuesday, Jan. 8 at the Williamson Fire Station in Williamson and on Wed., Jan. 9 at Ripley City Hall.

Written comments may be dropped in a comment box at the workshops or mailed to Cindy Butler, Director, West Virginia State Rail Authority, 120 Water Plan Drive, Moorefield, W.Va., 26836.

The West Virginia Department of Transportation will, upon request, provide reasonable accommodations including auxiliary aids and services necessary to afford an individual with a disability an equal opportunity to participate in our services, programs and activities.
