More choices for better transportation

Wyoming, Colorado begin HSR feasibility studies

Colorado’s Rocky Mountain Rail Authority announced yesterday that they were beginning the feasibility study for high-speed rail service along the state’s Interstate 24 and 70 corridors. The goal is to get the corridor accepted as one of the USDOT designated high-speed rail corridors. This would make the project eligable for future federal funding. What does that mean in terms of getting trains on the ground? Well, not a whole lot yet, but it’s a good start for a region far from America’s traditionally rail-heavy regions.

And as we wrote back in June, any such plan would probably be done in tandem with Wyoming and New Mexico, which are both studying similar proposals.
