State Funds Available for Freight Rail Projects

From WSDOT:
http://www.wsdot.wa.gov/News/2012/06/061012_freightrail.htm

The state is accepting applications through July 31st for programs to improve freight rail in the state. The projects should create family-wage jobs and demonstrate the economic impact of rail.

This is good news. The more freight that can be moved to rail, the better for our roads. Rail is much more efficient than a truck, especially for long distances, and is delayed less.
