HOLLAND, MI (WHTC) - There hasn’t been a passenger rail line between Holland and Detroit since the I-96 freeway was completed in 1970, but such a connection could become a reality. It may take up to 20 years, according to those from the Michigan Association of Rail Passengers and the Michigan Environmental Council who are pitching an initial idea to municipalities along the corridor. Such a train could reach speeds of 79 miles per hour. The Macatawa Area Coordinating Council’s Policy Committee endorsed the idea yesterday.
