The public will have a chance to weigh in on a proposed Duluth-to-Twin Cities high-speed rail line this week, Minnesota Public Radio reports. The Minnesota Department of Transportation will field questions Thursday evening at an open house in Cambridge.

A recent environmental study of the 155-mile Northern Lights Express didn't expose any major obstacles for the $820 million project.

"The public hearing is an opportunity to learn more about the project and for MnDOT to hear public comments on the proposed project," MnDOT spokesman Julie Carr told MPR. "High-speed passenger rail service offers a safe, reliable and efficient travel option to the public, connectivity to other existing and planned transportation systems and it offers options to the traveling public."

The meeting is set for April 4 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Cambridge Armed Forces Reserve Community Center.
