Biden Invests Billions to Modernize Northeast U.S. Rail Corridor

The region hasn't seen a major upgrade in decades

U.S. President Joe Biden on Monday announced the latest tranche of federal dollars to modernize key portions of the nation's busiest rail corridor that stretches from Boston to Washington, D.C.

Biden, who said he has traveled through the tunnel "thousands" of times, added that the region represents 20 percent of America's gross domestic product and hasn't seen a "major upgrade" for generations.

The investment will reduce delays, allow businesses to get their goods to market faster, benefit the environment and create 100,000 union jobs, the president said.
