Washington State to Receive nearly $600 Million Dollar in High Speed Rail Monday from Federal Stimulus!
This is great news for rail advocates in Washington, Oregon, and B.C.!
With stiff competition we are receiving nearly $600 million dollars in rail dollars from the federal stimulus High Speed Rail program.
Go to the White House Website for a full list and details on the Pacific Northwest Portion.
What does this mean:
90% on-time reliability between Seattle and Portland
2-3 more round-trips per day on the Seattle to Portland Corridor.
Considering all of the tough political competition coming from California, Florida, and the Mid-West, all with ambitious HSR plans, this is good news.
More coming soon!
