December 7, 2012


Billions of dollars are needed to strengthen and repair rail and other transportation networks in the northeast in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, according to lawmakers and transportation officials.

"Estimates of the damage have reached more than $7 billion. Across the region, train tunnels, stations, and rail yards were flooded, rail tracks were damaged and critical equipment was ruined," said New Jersey Democratic Senator Frank Lautenberg, as reported by Reuters.
