Some interesting articles that came out latley in the az repub about the growth the valley is predicted to gain.

First is about 400 new freeway miles and 320 miles of rail.

The next is about high speed rail, and how the valley is not on the feds plans? Kind of weird that the fifth largest city is not connected to the 2nd largest citeis etc.

last is about a concept some have been talking about for high speed rail.

From freeways, light rail, and commuter rail; I think most of this will come to fruition. The high speed rail is a different story I think. I think the 5th largest city should have a connection at least to the 2nd largest city in the nation.

I think this goes to show how Arizona is always behind the trends and curve of innovation. We seem to always be waiting to see what happens and not creative or innovative till this day.

Some history for you all. About 40-50 years ago, many in the valley did not want freeways, or the connection of I-10 between Phx and LA. That eventually happen in the 70's. This could be good or bad because many saw that this would help this area boom and many did not want that.

In the early 80
