So, now that the cutbacks are in the rear-view mirror (for now, at least).... the state is moving forward on station work that was to be "delayed indefinitely".

First up: Clinton, including pedestrian overpass and north side platform.

After Clinton, Madison would be the only single-sided station left on SLE. And then wire up Track 4 at Guilford.

Why does Clinton get a new platform before Madison, a station that has nearly double the ridership? (based on my own observances)

This is just me venting, I know the reason. Madison is harder to do because of the wetland next to station, and the state still wants to put a parking garage there (no, please no!) which makes the project bigger
