Regions Seek Rail Money

ACCE Webmaster on Wednesday, August 5, 2009 at 12:03:00 am

Across the country, regions are teaming up with state departments of transportation to request federal funding of high speed rail projects.

In Virginia state officials will ask for $1.6 billion in stimulus funds to improve existing rail infrastructure along I-95 corridor connecting the Petersburg, Richmond, Fredericksburg, Alexandria and Washington DC.  Read more about plan in this Washington Post article.

Florida, too, is seeking federal support for high speed rail.  They have a plan to connect Miami with Tampa via Orlando.  The Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce has voiced support for the plan.  Click for the Miami Herald story.

What stimulus projects is your region currently seeking?  Has your chamber endorsed potential stimulus funded infrastructure plans?  Leave a comment...
