Re: R.I.P: The Cincinnati Streetcar
The Governor's new Director of ODOT is a former asphalt and highway lobbyist. Essentially, anything on rails is screwed. 200-mph bullet trains could drop from the sky tomorrow free of charge and connect every Ohio city and town and the current administration would be against it.
Let's continue to widen highways though, that's a good investment. And for folks calling for a greater regional light rail plan? Remember MetroMoves in 2002? Yep, that was voted down by Hamilton County residents. Wonder if that vote would have been different if people didn't think gas would always be $1.25 gallon back then?
