GRI researchers Jody Holland and Sal Nobrega recently attended the Mississippi Association of Political Science's annual convention at the Mississippi University for Women in Columbus. At the convention, the findings of the most recent study looking at the potential of reopening the Columbus and Greenville Railway were presented.

The study looked at three different aspects of reopening the rail, which closed 10 years ago because of poor conditions: transportation cost benefits, workforce and economic impact, focusing on Washington, Sunflower, Leflore, Carroll, Montgomery, Webster, Oktibbeha, Clay and Lowndes counties. Interviews were conducted in the nine counties to find out how they would use the rail if it were restored.
