The DOT representative isn't being totally honest.
As detailed in this post, the $25 million won't even pay for HALF of the design work he mentions.
Additionally, NBC4 found out some interesting info via a new poll:
In an NBC 4 news poll conducted by Survey USA, 53 percent of respondents said they would almost never use a train line connecting Cleveland Columbus and Cincinnati.
Nearly half said they would only be willing to pay $10 for a one-way ticket.As we all know, tickets would cost much more than $10.
Can you say boondoggle?
