Stimulus / High-Speed Rail Update

Reuters reports that the Department of Transportation will reveal its plans for the use of the $8 billion in stimulus funds to be devoted to high-speed rail tomorrow.

According to Karen Rae, acting head of the Federal Railroad Administration, the plan “will be broad and strategic” and will “talk about how we begin to create this new vision for high-speed and intercity rail.”

Obviously we’ll know more about the federal government’s plans tomorrow, but it’s relieving to hear that the FRA is going to put the numerous high-speed rail projects in context with one another – hopefully as a national rail plan.
