Ohio Congress members seek Lake Erie high speed rail corridor

(The Cleveland Plain Dealer published the following on February 11, 2010.)

CLEVELAND, Ohio — Ohio may yet get on track with President Obama's newly announced $53 billion initiative to build a nationwide high speed rail network.

A bipartisan group of northern Ohio Congress members met Thursday with Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood to discuss building a high speed rail line along Lake Erie that would link Cleveland with Chicago, Detroit, Toledo and Buffalo, and also include routes to Youngstown and Pittsburgh. Building a line along the lake is a top tier part of Obama's rail program.

The full story appears on the Plain Dealer website.
