Northern New England Corridor is one of ten federally designated high-speed rail corridors in the United States. If the 489-mile corridor were completed as proposed, 110-mph passenger trains would travel from Boston, Massachusetts, to Montreal, Quebec, Canada, in 4 hours and 31 minutes, and would travel at similar speeds from Boston to Auburn, Maine.
In 2004, Congress extended the Northern New England High Speed Rail Corridor from Boston, MA, to Springfield, MA and Albany, NY, and from Springfield, MA, to New Haven, CT.
The Boston-Springfield-Albany route would provide a link to the [1 ] Empire Corridor.
