High-speed rail in the Northeast Corridor is critical to providing the capacity needed to support projected growth in the region. The Corridor’s $3 trillion economy, representing 20% of the nation’s total, is the direct result of our nation’s historic investments in world-class infrastructure. However, as our vital transportation arteries clog up, current budgets do not project similar investments to meet future demand. The Northeast Corridor must build high-speed rail in order to maintain the freedom and mobility that its economic health and competitiveness is founded on.
