The partnership will advocate for a high speed rail between the Twin Cities and Chicago. This corridor includes the rail route from Union Depot in St. Paul south along the Mississippi River to La Crescent.

This corridor shares the Red Rock Corridor from St. Paul to Hastings. The Minnesota High Speed Rail Corridor will connect Minnesota to Chicago and the greater Midwest Regional Rail System spanning 3,000 miles and nine Midwest states.

Commissioner Myra Peterson was appointed as the Minnesota High Speed Rail Commission representative for Washington County and Commissioner Gary Kriesel as the alternate for 2009.
