Capitol Cooridor is holding two “scoping meetings” this week on its plans for a $200 million track construction project that would allow it run round-trip passenger rail service 10 times a day between Sacramento and Roseville.

Public meetings on the so-called “third track” project will take place from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at Sacramento’s Historic City Hall, 915 I St., and Thursday at the Roseville Civic Center, 311 Vernon St. Online scoping meetings also will be available online 24 hours a day starting Wednesday through Aug. 1. Visit the project web site, www.sactoroseville3rdtrack.com/home, for more information.

The project involves construction of a third rail line on the Union Pacific Railroad right-of-way. Officials with Union Pacific, which would own the line, say the project would free up space for their freight train operations, which are expected to increase over time.
