How does $205 billion for a national high-speed rail sound? With infrastructure planning underway and prospects of returning to the office on lots of minds, transportation possibilities are everywhere. Remember the Jetsons…? Think it will happen?
With “normal” rapidly becoming a thing of the past, it may be time to not just repair—but reimagine. For example, Construction Dive has reported on the possibility of a $205 billion investment in making trains a viable transportation option around the country:
Supporters…say it would better connect so-called “economic megaregions,” create a national transportation strategy and reduce traffic congestion. They also said it would create at least 2.6 million jobs over five years in construction and other sectors.
Whatever the final form legislative initiatives take, infrastructure spending looks to be on the rise. It is exhilarating to think about speed, right? Imagine zipping from Houston to Dallas in 90 minutes? Baltimore to New York in an hour?
