High-speed rail

The Detroit-Chicago corridor has been designated by the Federal Railroad Administration as a high-speed rail corridor.[1] A 97-mile stretch along the route of Wolverine from Porter, Indiana to Kalamazoo, Michigan is the longest segment of track owned by Amtrak outside of the Northeast Corridor.[1] Amtrak began speed increases along this stretch in January 2002. Ultimately, speed increases to 110 mile-per-hour service are planned.[1][2]
