The "S" line could be completed by end of 4 yers that would give HrSR between RGH - Petersburg and 70 MPH on to wash. Not bad as one small step for quicker travel ?If Joe is elected, this is a big opportunity to make political hay (not to mention, make a durable transportation corridor between some fast-growing, important cities.) Friendly governors, a friendly legislature in Virginia, a mostly government-owned corridor (everything north of Norlina, NC) with an owner (CSX) willing to wheel and deal on the remainder, and a growing market that’s just out of comfortable driving distance. With some forethought, he could have Gov. Cooper include the Wilmington extension in the plans.
Not sure who Joe will put forward as a potential SecTrans if elected. Garcetti comes to mind, whether or not I agree fully with him.
