Plymouth to Kohler Rail Rehabilitation Project
In 2012 the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) has announced it will be funding the 11 mile rail restoration project between Plymouth and Kohler with over $17 million. The WisDOT purchased the rail line back in 2009, and expects to complete the project by the end of 2014.
The rail restoration project is estimated at $19.1 million. The remaining funds will be provided by WSOR; cities of Plymouth and Sheboygan Falls; Sheboygan County; Bemis Manufacturing; Kettle Lakes Co-op, King Structures and Morrelle Transfer & Warehouse.
The rail line servicing Plymouth to Sheboygan Falls has been out-of-service for over 20 years, while the Kohler to Sheboygan Falls corridor has been discontinued since 2006. This project is the first freight rail line that has been restored in the State of Wisconsin.
