    Air travel corridors and automobile arteries are at or near maximum carrying capacity and travel time using those modes will only get longer and longer in the coming years. Even at a cost of one hundred billion or more, a long term return of trillions makes the project worth it.

    PS: Every infrastructure project, public or private, is prone to cost overruns.


    Yep just like the Big Dig... https://www.city-journal.org/html/le...dig-13049.html

    If so, where and for how long, and what years?

    One could even argue that the DC Metro system is piss pour due to crappy management and funding issues but a drive down to downtown DC will make it clear that, even as crappy as it is, it sure beats trying to go there in a car.
    One trip into Georgetown will make it abundantly clear.

    Funny during my business career, I traveled to DC and Boston fairly regularly. I fact part of my responsibilities included visiting all regional offices regularly. I find both Boston, D.C. and New York on a par for congestion, filth, and high crime rate.

    Funny, I was just thinking about the idiocy of the PMS Left on the subject of the "Wall". In the last two decades or more, part of out transport infrastructure has erected wall around highways of all sorts to block out noise and hitch hikers. I have never heard a word from either side in objection to these barriers. Yet, suddenly the PMS Democrat Leftists find every and any excuse not to build a wall/barrier that will stop or at least slow the problem of illegal immigration. Go figure.....
