Meridian may see new train route
A new train route may be coming to Union Station. The Texas-based I-20 Corridor Council is conducting a study to re-establish a route from Fort Worth, Texas, to Atlanta. Meridian would be a stop in between the two locations. Much of the track is already there, but the missing piece is a 345-mile stretch of track between Marshall, Texas and Meridian. The I-20 Corridor Council believes the route will provide economic benefit to Texas, Mississippi, and Louisiana. It says the study should be completed soon.
