More choices for better transportation

HSR proposals near

Florida Rep. John Mica will start briefings today on upcoming HIgh Speed Rail proposals on 11 designated corridors. Progressive Rail News is following developments with this report.

The bill requires the USDOT to solicit project proposals by Dec. 15 from the private sector for the 11 federally designated high-speed rail corridors. Governors and mayors, freight and commuter railroads, labor organizations and Amtrak will evaluate the proposals for each corridor.

Well, it’s a beginning.
