The funding and building of critical transportation infrastructure is one of the Top 10 Louisiana Speaks Priorities for 2008. In particular, the plan supports "Regional transit projects with recovery and evacuation value, such as commuter rail from New Orleans to Baton Rouge."
Apparently, othere agree with the plan's priorities. This recent editorial from The Advocate offers a persuasive argument for continuing to develop a plan for commuter rail between New Orleans and Baton Rouge.
What do you think? How can this vision be realized? Feel free to leave a comment here or, if you agree with the editorial, send a Letter to the Editor (and don't forget to mention your support for the Louisiana Speaks Regional Plan).
