This week the featured news involves two exciting updates for Ohio involving (drum roll please): Hyper-loop trains!
MORPC announced earlier this week a $2.5 million dollar transportation initiative to conduct a feasibility and environmental study on a proposed hyper-loop train that would stretch from Pittsburgh to Columbus to Chicago (with other potential stops along the way). Some areas that are supporting this study financially include areas we serve: The City of Columbus, Marysville and Lima, and Union County, to name a few.
