HOUSTON - Texas is one step closer to getting a bullet train.
The company behind the project “Texas Central” announced it will use two contractors: a Connecticut company called Lane Construction and Fluor Enterprises from the Dallas area.
The contractors will complete the 240-mile track connecting Houston to Dallas-Fort Worth if backers manage to come up with the $12 billion needed to build it.
The trip would take 90 minutes instead of the 4-and-a-half-hour trip by car.
