How can an I-45 routing help ridership when the HSR train will not have any stations between Dallas and Houston? At best, they're proposing maybe one intermediate station on SH 30 halfway between College Station and Huntsville, potentially attracting customers from both I-45 and SH-6.
While the environmental study hasn't been completed and the routing hasn't been officially verified,Texas Central has already stated its preference of the Utility corridor. So I suggest the I-45 routing is dead for all practical purposes.
