High-Speed Rail Could Connect The Whole Country 

Many high-speed rail projects across the states are making steady progress, and it seems more and more possible every day that, one day, high-speed rail could connect the states like never before. This is, of course, thanks in no small part to our President’s passion for high-speed rail. Illinois, Texas, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and California are just a few of the states currently working on big plans for high-speed rail. 

The Pacific Northwest Could Benefit From High-Speed Rail 

The Pacific Northwest, of course, is determined not to be left behind as high-speed rail plans take off all across the country. Cascadia High Speed Rail has developed high-speed rail proposals to connect Eugene, OR all the way up to Vancouver, BC – connecting all the points in between as well. The Portland-to-Seattle high-speed rail route would make travel between these two well-populated areas faster than ever at only 58 minutes. 

Jobs Lost To The Pacific Northwest As A Result Of The Pandemic 

It’s undeniable that the COVID-19 pandemic has had a huge impact on jobs in the Pacific Northwest. Jobs in many sectors, including areas such as construction, are still below pre-pandemic numbers. In addition to the environmental and other economical benefits that high-speed rail has to offer the Pacific Northwest, the construction of high-speed rail in our area could bring back many jobs to our area. In fact, one study showed that high-speed rail projects could create as many as 200,000 jobs in the Pacific Northwest. The people of the Pacific Northwest truly cannot ignore the benefits that can be brought about by high-speed rail any longer.
