There’s lots of concern about possible negative effects on the County of Grimes from both construction and operation of Texas Central Partner’s proposed High-Speed Bullet Train, but TCP’s new President and CEO predicts, the line could actually be a benefit.
Tim Keith tells Navasota news his company is planning on investing around $1,000,000,000 into the county and has no intention of blocking off any public roads or land owners from their property. And along with that billion dollar investment, he continues, TCP is adamant about building a train station in Grimes somewhere along the utility corridor.
Keith says the company will be holding another round of open houses around the state and also plans on opening a hot-line for concerned citizens to call for more information.
But, he admits there’s a lot of work that both the FRA and TCP need to do before those meetings, but Keith says the company is planning on holding them sometime this year.
And when both those meetings and the hot-line are set, you’ll hear about it all right here on Navasota News.
