    The Gazette article about I-25 is so slanted as to be worthless. Highway widening options are a given but rail has to be “locally driven”? What sense does that make? Can’t a rail line move many more people than a highway lane? Shouldn’t the state be in favor of the more efficient means of transportation? They also don’t take into account the fact that even should the width be doubled, where the hell are all those people going to fit their cars when they arrive in Denver? And if a train is built instead a lane, maybe people use that since the highway is jammed and now you don’t need to widen the highway. The process is ass-backwards.
