Urban Rail master plan includes alignment along San Jacinto

Urban rail ambitions for Austin will have to include some kind of system through the UT campus.  

That may be along Speedway, through the heart of the 40 acres.  Rail project manager Kyle Keahey explains, "They've gone through a  major master-planned effort they revealed earlier this year.  And the one area they've identified in their master plan is urban rail alignment along San Jacinto." 

Keahey says they want to work with the university on any other rail alignments that may come to the table.  Total costs of an urban rail system have not been determined, but some estimates put it at about a billion dollars, maybe slightly more or less.
