Michigan receiving $40 million for high-speed rail

(The Associated Press circulated the following on January 28, 2010.)

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Michigan is expected to receive $40 million in stimulus funds to develop high-speed rail corridors linking Detroit and Chicago.

President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden are announcing $8 billion in grants Thursday for 13 major corridors around the country.

Michigan's funding will help construct a new station building, platform and passenger services at a new Amtrak station in Dearborn. In Troy, the funds will help build a new platform and passenger services facility.

And in Battle Creek, the grants will renovate a station building and passenger service facility.

The $8 billion in funding for high-speed trains and other passenger rail projects is part of the $787 billion recovery act.
