Johnson City votes to rail bank
Thursday, Nov. 19 - Johnson City commissioners voted to send a letter of intent to rail bank the ET&WNC rail line with the Surface Transportation Board. This will be followed with a push for a negotiated settlement for purchase on the property for a multi-use trail. Through rail banking the rail corridor stays intact in case of future need for rail service arises but can be used as a trail corridor until that time.
