High Speed Rail Request



The Minnesota High Speed Rail Commission has gone on record supporting a request for $27,000,000 in the 2014 bonding bill.

The request is being made by the Minnesota Department of Transportation's Passenger Rail Office.

According to "Finance and Commerce," it's the same amount the office requested last year from the legislature.

Eventually MnDOT wants to run six roundtrips between the Twin Cities and Chicago each day at speeds up to 110 miles an hour.
                 
The preferred route chosen for the future trains would run on the Canadian Pacific tracks along the Mississippi River and through Winona.
                  
The High Speed Rail Commission met Thursday in Red Wing.
