21st Century Transportation for America


The art of infrastructure
Building the US High Speed Rail network will be the great project of modern time

The infrastructure needs of this project are huge and include the construction of thousands of miles of new high grade track, signaling, and electrification, as well as hundreds of bridges, many miles of tunnels, hundreds of new train stations and numerous support facilities.
