Transit Shuts Down Ahead of Tropical Storm Isaac
Planes, trains and automobiles are shutting down around New Orleans as Tropical Storm Isaac approaches the Gulf Coast on track for a late Tuesday landfall. Louis Armstrong International Airport will be shut down at the end of the day Monday, and has no flights scheduled Tuesday. Amtrak also suspended service to New Orleans, stopping trains until Thursday. Getting around New Orleans will also be tougher, as the Regional Transit Authority halted streetcar service today at 2 p.m. Buses will stop running once winds increase to 35 mph. Boats are also feeling the storm's impact, as ferry service across the Mississippi River was halted today.
Amtrak Fretting Over Freight For City of New Orleans
As Arlo Guthrie told it, the City of New Orleans brought passengers from Chicago to the Crescent City by nightfall. But that neat, poetic timeline is apparently in jeopardy. According to Chicago media, Amtrak filed an official complaint against Canadian National that says freight trains are excessively delaying the famed passenger route. Delays on the route last year were roughly the equivalent of 26 days. And you thought that song was long now!
