Bob Krause, came out with a “top 10” highway and rail projects to modernize Iowa’s transportation system.
A couple of the projects caught my attention.
State Capitols Y, feels a little Avenue of the Saints-ish to me.
Krause also wants to Expand Amtrak through central Iowa.
Krause must get his news from the Pony Express, and the scientific community is united in that fact, as of last week that project is leaking like a sieve because Increases in construction costs over the past three years and new federal standards for track and bridge upgrades have driven costs higher.
Even Dummycrat State Senator Matt McCoy thinks the idea has run out of steam -- "Ultimately, as I view things, I think it’s an insurmountable lift for passenger rail. It's time to cut our losses and move on."
