Welcome to the Northern Rail Extension website
The Alaska Railroad Corporation (ARRC) plans to extend the existing rail line from its terminus near North Pole, Alaska, 80 miles to a point near Delta Junction. The line will ultimately provide improved transportation options for the U.S. military, mass transit, and freight movement. Here you will find up-to-date information on the project, the route, construction phases, and how you can stay informed about the project.
