NORTHEAST CORRIDOR HIGH-SPEED RAIL PASSENGER SERVICE IMPROVEMENT PROJECT. TASK 11N - DETAILED PHYSICAL PLANT IMPROVEMENTS AND ESTIMATED COSTS (NEW HAVEN, CT. TO BOSTON, MA.). VOLUME II

Using information developed in other tasks of this study, a detailed time-phased, cost improvement plan to accomplish improved high-speed rail passenger service in the NEC is formulated. A complete description of an upgraded NEC facility is developed on a mile-by-mile basis. Dollar costs, time savings and schedules are presented by milepost segments. Criteria are developed for time phasing track improvements, bridge and tunnel improvements, electrification, signaling and facilities to relieve traffic congestion. Estimated cost of the facility improvements between New Haven and Boston is $680,034,000. These improvements could be implemented over a four year phased period.
