Virginia Submits High-Speed Rail Pre-applications



July 9, 2009 By

Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine announced today that the state has submitted $2 billion in ARRA pre-applications focused on a high-speed rail project between Washington, D.C., and Petersburg, Va. Virginia has invested more than $197 million in the congested I-95 corridor to-date, said Kaine in a release, and recently executed an agreement with Amtrak to initiate a new Northeast Corridor train between Richmond and Washington, D.C. "Virginia has made significant investments in rail options to help rebalance our transportation network in the commonwealth," said Kaine. "As we continue to work toward high-speed rail in Virginia, the availability of ARRA funds will help deliver more transportation choices and economic benefits to the public much more quickly than we would otherwise be able to achieve."
