Highway Maintenance Savings

Highway maintenance savings – The reinstatement of passenger rail requires an investment in the freight rail system along this corridor. As a result, some truck traffic will naturally gravitate to the rail system from the highway system. A ratio from the USDOT website explains the impact of this:

A fully loaded 80,000 gross volume weight truck does 9600 times the damage

to a highway that a car does. By moving some freight from the highways to

the rail, you will save measurable highway maintenance dollars.
