The state Department of Transportation is evaluating two routes through Raleigh for the Southeast High Speed Rail Corridor, which would give passenger trains a fast new shortcut to Richmond, Va. The proposed new track would cut nearly two hours from train trips between North Carolina and the Northeast.

Both Raleigh route options would constrict Jones Street but in dramatically different ways. The choice could help shape downtown growth for decades to come.
