The railroad industry's investment in infrastructure alone will not be enough to handle the U.S. Department of Transportation's prediction that freight transportation demand will rise 92% by 2035 from 2002 levels. Congress and the administration should enact an infrastructure investment tax credit for the rail industry to help accommodate this projected increase.
