    Mayor Dave Bing and Gov. Rick Snyder met today in Bing's office with LaHood; businessman Roger Penske, chairman of the M-1 project; and several members of the Michigan's congressional delegation to discuss the issues.
    Penske said he was "very excited" about LaHood's comments that he is in favor of the project. "We have to be sure we have all the technical information available to us," he said. "There's a concern, potentially, about who's going to run this."

    Penske said it was clear the federal government wants a regional transportation authority [think bridge] to help with the project.

    Investors with the M-1 group submitted their plans to federal officials in April. Group officials said they had raised most of the $137 million needed to build the line and pledged to pay 80 percent of the annual cost of operating it through 2025.

    The rail line would extend 3.3 miles from downtown, north to the New Center Area.

    Can y'all get over the size of the stones on those like Roger in the Billionaire Club walking around with their hand out for taxpayer money?

    All of them in Detroit.  Penske, Gilbert, Ilitch, and the Ford's.  They all talk Free Market, but sure as hell don't mind Socialism when it comes to feeding their Crony Capitalism and Corporate Welfare wallets.

    Are you kidding me? (5.00 / 1) (#1)

    This guy can't even manage maintaining A ROAD correctly:

    "The material used to patch the Belle Isle track, according to Penske, was the same used at Daytona. It's a quick-curing material that is four times stronger than concrete."

    A patch doesn't mean squat, if what you're patching it to should've been ripped out and replaced years ago.

    Can you imaging the job he'll do with something where safety is a little more pressing; like, say a train?

    Unlike cars, trains have this nasty problem with steering themselves once they careen off of the track.
