Colorado Studying Feasibility of Front Range Commuter Rail
Colorado voters could be asked as early as 2008 to approve funding for a proposed high-speed commuter rail system to connect Front Range communities from Wyoming to New Mexico, officials said.
In the meantime, the Rocky Mountain Rail Authority is seeking federal and local funds for a feasibility study of the proposal to develop a commuter-rail system that could reach as far north as Casper, Wyo., and as far south as Albuquerque, N.M., said group director Bob Briggs, a former state lawmaker and member of the Regional Transportation District board.
"It's critical to put this together now," before population growth overtakes the region's highway capacity, he said.
