Camden-Glassboro rail plan is going nowhere

From the Press of Atlantic City:

The plan announced by then-Gov. Jon S. Corzine in May 2009 involves an 18-mile light rail line between Camden and Glassboro. The Camden-Glassboro Line would someday be extended 19 miles from Glassboro to Millville in the center of Cumberland County.

Construction of the estimated $1.6 billion project between just Camden and Glassboro was to begin this year and be finished in time for passenger service to start in 2019, according to Delaware River Port Authority documents. That schedule is no longer viable.

The Camden-Glassboro Line is one of many transit proposals from the early 2000s that have seen little if any progress.
