    The “trench” aka the express lanes sounds interesting! Any sketches or diagrams of the express lanes? Where do they start/end?

    Oh, the money was there. It’s always there for what people in power actually want to do.

    I have not understood this project from the beginning, and I still don’t get it.

    I think the only thing it will do is move the traffic build up from 270 and shift it into the trench. over a quarter of a billion dollars to bypass a couple traffic lights so people can get back to their Delaware County Homes. How much would a light rail with park and rides cost from Delaware to Columbus?

    31 Miles at ~$70m/mile = $2.2Billion

    Um, no.

    Recent commuter rail start up costs have ranged from $1.3 million per mile for Nashville’s Music City Star (a line which is mostly single-tracked) to a high of $26 million per mile for the Seattle Sounder.

    70 million a mile might be accurate if they were constructing a subway. Actually, that’s probably a little cheap.
