Obama To Speak On HSR

A monumental event

President Obama will outline his “broad” plans for HSR tomorrow. This site will bring you extensive coverage of this historic event.


Background: HSR in America 2009

Last February the Economic Stimulus Package allocated $8 billion for HSR. Additionally there is $5 billion allocated five years in the President’s national budget. CHSRA is requesting half of the $8 billion up for grabs, but there is strong competition.


A brief summary of the projects that may be announced tomorrow is available at the Transport Politic. The Federal Railroad Administration’s (FRA’s) website also a has a list of HSR corridors that might be addressed by President Obama. A map of these corridors is picture bellow.




Stay tuned.
