THE HIGH-SPEED RAIL RACE

Posted by Steve Anderson on Thursday, October 8th, 2009

The Federal Railroad Administration is no longer accepting applications for high-speed rail stimulus funds, and it looks like it’s going to take some time for them to sort through all the contestants.

According to this statement by FRA Administrator Joseph C. Szabo, they’ll be announcing the recipients of high-speed rail funding sometime this winter.

To get an idea of the competition, check out America 2050’s report on Where High Speed Rail Works Best.

And to learn more, visit the FRA’s High Speed Rail Page.

Update 10/15/2009: This Preliminary Rail Plan offers insight into the FRA’s agenda.
