Thanks for the welcome comments from my last post, even if someone says I have “pretentious” taste in pizza. I’ll let that slide for now… punk.
In other news, I’m curious what people have read about the new T-Rex light rail. I’ve been thinking how happy it’ll make me when I can see it humming along the 25 corridor, serving as an advertisement for itself to the parade of car commuters.
Yeah, I know, cars are great, blah, blah, blah.
The reason for this post is that I haven’t seen much on the local blogs about it and I think it’s going to be a major improvement to the overall well being of the city. Maybe I haven’t read the right blogs…
I’m also curious about whether it might one day connect down to Colorado Springs? Or is that the stuff they make crack pipes for?
I believe the span of the project from Lone Tree to downtown is just over 40 miles, which makes it pretty long for a light rail as opposed to a commuter rail, which is usually bigger, faster, stronger, etc… But from what I understand, there’s commuter rail that’s a lot smaller in terms of distance than the T-Rex project.
Is there a real obvious reason why it’s light and not commuter?
I’m fortunate enough not to have to commute further than my basement office, but I can’t wait for the damn thing. Anyhow, whatever folks know or have read about this and care to point me to in comments is appreciated.
