High-speed rail between Atlanta and Charlotte a possibility

Commuting between Atlanta and Charlotte in as little as two hours could become possible, with the construction of a high-speed rail line connecting the two cities. Southeast High-Speed Rail, or SEHSR, would run with a few stops in between.

Estimated to cost anywhere from $2 billion to $15.4 billion, the project could transport more than 6 million passengers annually by the year 2050.

Transportation officials are deciding between three possible routes for the high-speed rail line to follow, all of which would service downtown and airport stations in both cities. You can submit suggestions or concerns via the GDOT website.

I wouldn’t hold my breath – you’d turn very blue waiting on Georgia to spend any transportation money on anything besides asphalt.
