Transportation Secretary LaHood to deliver good news (and money) for light rail

The last time I wrote about the prospects for light rail, Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood was making encouraging noises at the 2012 NAIAS.  This year, he's coming back with more than encouragement.  Here's what crossed my feed last week.

WXYZ on YouTube: Transportation Secretary LaHood to visit Detroit

The Detroit Free Press had more speculation in Woodward light-rail project will receive $25 million in federal funding.

That's a pretty complete report, but if you want something you can read, the Free Press has a three paragraph blurb with the headline U.S. transit chief Ray LaHood in Detroit Friday to make light rail announcement.

The announcement is probably the most anticipated transit news of the year so far.  I hope it lives up to the hype.
