Rail Inventory Workshop

Event Type

Jul 6, 2022 2:00pm - Jul 6, 2022 5:00pm

In the 2021 Transportation Budget, Section 102, (Substitute Senate Bill 5165 or SSB 5165), the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission (Commission) was directed to prepare an inventory of rail safety oversight conducted by state agencies in other states identified for review by program area as compared to the role of state agencies in Washington. The results of the examination must be reported to the appropriate legislative committees by September 1, 2022, and must include an overview of a stakeholder workshop with interested parties.
The Commission entered into a contract with a consultant team led by David Evans and Associates, Inc. (DEA) to prepare this inventory, facilitate the stakeholder workshop, and interview the states identified in SSB 5165 (New York and California) as well as the states selected by the Commission (Idaho and Oregon).
DEA will facilitate the stakeholder workshop on rail safety oversight inventory on July 6, 2022, from 2 p.m. – 4 p.m. Pacific Time. This workshop will introduce the consultant team and provide an overview of the project.
