CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. – A possible high-speed rail link from Chattanooga to Atlanta will follow Interstate 75 to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, the Georgia Department of Transportation says. Previously, the department had been considering several possibilities. Now, with the route more defined, the state can begin studying all the implications of building the line. The department hopes to have a plan before the U.S. Department of Transportation for approval by mid-2012, but it could be another 10 years before funding allows construction to begin.
