NC-To-DC High Speed Rail Compact To Meet In Va.
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Virginia and North Carolina representatives are scheduled to meet on the development of high-speed rail service from Charlotte, N.C., to Washington, D.C.
Members of the Virginia-North Carolina Interstate High Speed Rail Compact are to meet Tuesday in Richmond. The panel is made up of members from each state’s legislature.
The compact was created by both states to develop the high-speed rail corridor. A primary goal is obtaining federal funding.
In 2012, Virginia received nearly $75 million for the project.
