110 mph from Grand Rapids to Detroit!

6 posts in this topic

It would actually extend all the way through GR to Holland.

Sorry Jackson, but the major growth is happening near Howell/Brighton in Livingston County, that'd be the better route.

I hope these plans are realistic. Federal funding? 

110 mph! Next up, 165 Acela!

If you need something to read, here's the study where the article came from:

Executive Summary;

executive summary

or the whole thing;

Coast to Coast Rail Study

I've only superficially read it myself so far but I'm skeptical of their passenger projections unless maybe I-96 is going to be torn out and destroyed.

This will not happen unless they elevate the railway for a good portion of the route.

I wonder if traveling to GR by flying in/out of DTW and taking one of these would be practical.
