KIEM TV-3 HUMBOLDT COUNTY – The East-West rail line has some new life. Caltrans District 2 awarded more than $275,000 to Trinity County for a feasibility study on the project. Transportation officials will study costs associated with building, maintaining and operating a rail line between Humboldt Bay and inland communities.
It’s been all quiet for the last seven months since the Crazy Train advocates had their asses handed to them in the Harbor district elections. Just when you thought it was safe to go ahead on and deal with the “legitimate” issues around here like the Green Rush, the Homeless crisis, the crime wave…..we could go on and on. No we’ll have to devote a a bunch of energy monitoring this so called “feasibility” that Trinity County got $276,000 to complete. We have to watch closely or they’ll hire some Arkley flunkey to do the study which of course would conclude that there’ll be no harm to the environment and we’ll all become millionaires.
Too bad this money couldn’t be used for safety improvements on Hwy 36 or 299
