Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
... train, or several Rapid Rail corridors. The Triple-C corridor, which is the trunk of the Ohio Hub, was costed at $1.1b in infrastructure in 2002$, so accounting for inflation and 20% to 40% system establishment costs, that's under $2b.

But as Stimulus spending that has to be spent by 2012, its better seen as a downpayment to allow projects to get jump started now, when states would struggle mightily to come up with the normal state match.
