My favorite quote:
Proposed project costs range from $500 million to $14.5 billion.That's a heckuva range. I believe the $500m is the no-build option. I believe by law they are required to include this in the EIS (supposed to include service enhancements, rehab possibilitites, etc., used as a benchmark).
It seemed like a well-written article. Maybe that's because it wasn't bythe INFAMOUS Caren Halbfinger?
Looks like the details will be forthcoming, but of course, as Mr. Weaver points out, that's a lot of money, top-side is what ESA is costing. PA is committed to THE, MTA to ESA and 2nd Ave Subway, and NYS is debt-ridden (hey, want something done? Let's pass a BOND ISSUE!
Maybe Hillary can find it in the federal budget somewhere, and do something for NY citizens before she bolts for greener pastures. That is what you all elected her for, right?
Don't get me wrong, I'm all for this. This is just a heads-up for the technical details that will be forthcoming if the option is commuter rail with MNRR running it. I suggest if you're interested, to check the TZB web-site for meeting dates and times, and sign up for the newsletter.
