Rhode Island to compete for share of federal high-speed rail money

(The following appeared on the Providence Journal website on April 1, 2011.)

PROVIDENCE, R.I. Rhode Island will compete for a share of $2.4 billion in federal money for high-speed rail that had been originally set aside for Florida.

The state Department of Transportation confirmed this week that it will submit three proposals for projects in South Kingstown, Providence and Warwick totaling $31 million. The Obama administration has set an April 4 deadline for applications.

Rhode Island is among a number of states, including Connecticut, Massachusetts and Vermont, that have expressed interest in the federal funds since Florida Gov. Rick Scott declined them.
