Local High-Speed Rail Meeting; Labor Day Service Schedule
Last week, we reported that an informational session for contractors and other vendors interested in the high-speed rail project was set for Lakeland. This week we got word that a public meeting for citizens who would like general information on the project will take place here in Tampa. According to the Tampa Downtown Partnership, the Florida Department of Transportation is holding a public information meeting on the Tampa - Orlando high speed rail project on Tuesday, August 31st at the Tampa Convention Center at 6:30pm.
Florida Rail Enterprise officials will present an overview of the project followed by question and answer sessions. Public comment cards will be available. The public meetings are free, open to the public and require no advance registration. For details, visit the project website at http://www.floridahighspeedrail.org/.
