The Washington Post on the plan to refurbish Union Station in DC:
The federal environmental review of the project, which began in 2015, is at least three years behind schedule. Once the federal approval process is complete, a design phase is likely to take several years, project officials said, possibly followed by 13 years of construction.
A good example of the Ezra Klein point about the costs of everything bagel liberalism. By the way, the push to eliminate more than a thousand parking spots at the station seems counter-productive. I’m not a fan of parking minimums but in typical liberal fashion that has been turned into an anti-parking, anti-car crusade regardless of context. In fact, a railroad station is precisely where you do want parking to avoid the last mile(s) problem and encourage rail use.
