Hyperloop One this morning announced 10 global routes that it considers to have the most potential for implementation of the hyperloop high-speed transportation technology.
Four of those corridors are in the United States: Cheyenne-Denver, Chicago-Columbus-Pittsburgh, Miami-Orlando and Dallas-Houston.
“While Missouri’s Kansas City-St. Louis route was not included in the list of 10, it is still considered by Hyperloop One as a finalist in the global competition, McKenna said.
“MoDOT was told the Hyperloop One Global Challenge judges and engineers were impressed by the quality of the KC-St. Louis proposal and feel an opportunity exists for collaboration to further develop the potential of the corridor.”
He continued, “We are excited about the possibility of future discussions with the Hyperloop One team and how this innovative technology could benefit the citizens and economy of Missouri in the future.”
