Potential Yolo Rail Realignment Offers Positive Economic Benefits

Potential Yolo Rail Realignment Offers Positive Economic Benefits

Yolo County, the cities of Davis, West Sacramento and Woodland, and the Sacramento Area Flood Control Agency are excited to announce completion of the Yolo Rail Realignment Economic Benefits Study.  

Prepared with support from a 2014 U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA) grant, the study analyzes the economic potential of relocating the rail line that runs through the centers of Davis and Woodland, and extending rail service to industrial areas in Woodland, the west side of West Sacramento and the Port of West Sacramento.  Study findings show rail relocation could generate substantial economic benefit in Yolo County and align well with regional flood protection options currently being studied.
