The Central Corridor Project has reached a new milestone. According to an article in the TC Daily Planet, after spending a day towing one of the 265,000 lb. rail cars the length of the 10 mile route, and having spent roughly a billion-dollars on essentially upgrading the 10 mile Route 50 bus line, the Met Council has been able to “make sure that the trains actually run on the tracks without hitting anything” or in Met Council-speak “verify clearance for LRV’s.” Apparently, the Met Council engineers, thorough and diligent public servants that they are, have spent a day towing a rail car very slowly down the street to make sure they got their height and width measurements correct.
HOOYAH! The Brainpower State.
