High-speed rail among top 100 U.S. infrastructure projects, CG/LA says


The top 100 infrastructure projects in the United States include several high-speed rail and passenger-rail projects, according to a list released earlier this week by CG/LA Infrastructure L.L.C.

The "Top 100 U.S. Strategic Infrastructure Projects" list features projects that have a total estimated value of about $465 billion.

Rail projects included in the "new infrastructure" category include six high-speed passenger-rail projects, such as a line in San Francisco/Los Angeles and the Midwest Regional Rail Initiative. The list also includes 18 urban mass-transit projects, such as Michigan's Regional Rail Link and northern Virginia's Dulles Access Corridor Project.  

CG/LA estimates that 2 million new jobs would be directly and indirectly created each year between 2010 and 2014 through the development of the top-100 infrastructure projects.
