The Business Alliance for Northeast Mobility sent a letter to Secretary LaHood in support of the Northeast Corridor Multi-Modal High Speed Rail Improvement Plan.
This proposal, submitted to the FRA on behalf of eleven northeastern states and Amtrak, seeks federal funding for an $18.8 million four-phased planning study. The study will explore investments needed to meet travel demand in the Northeast Corridor, including both incremental improvements and investments in dedicated tracks for true high-speed service.
The Business Alliance for Northeast Mobility strongly supports this proposal, which represents an historic collaboration among 11 states and Amtrak to plan for the future of the nation's most congested intercity and commuter rail corridor.
