On April 28, EESI's Transportation and Energy Policy Fellow, Paul Haven, gave a presentation to the Maryland American Planning Association in Annapolis, Maryland. His presentation, Toward A Sustainable Transportation Network in the Northeast Corridor, covered the reasons why a national high-speed passenger rail network would not only make our national transportation network more sustainable, but would also improve the nation's economic competitiveness for decades to come. Paul also highlighted that the Federal Railroad Administration's evaluation of rail investment alternatives for the Northeast Corridor, known as NEC FUTURE, needs to consider the cost and impact of expanding road and air networks, as such an expansion would be required in scenarios involving lower levels of rail investment.
