El Paso-centric info and commentary from the Center of North America

High speed rail from El Paso to Denver? Governors are applying to the feds to study it.

Story from Colorado. [link]

An excerpt: “High-speed rail has long been a conversation in Colorado, and this designation would provide the funding needed to further examine its feasibility,” Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter said. “There is a great deal of movement of people, goods and services along the Front Range and the entire Colorado-Texas-New Mexico corridor, and it is high time Congress designate a Western corridor. This designation would connect our communities, increase economic opportunities, create jobs, and lead Colorado’s transportation infrastructure forward.”
