Eminent Domain seen as hurdle to proposed St. Louis to KC hyperloop train.
A high-speed pneumatic tube transportation line that would whisk travelers across the 250-mile expanse between St. Louis and Kansas City in a half hour is feasible, its backers say.
Part of the reason is that the Missouri Department of Transportation lent its support to the project, first pitching the route three years ago. Thus right of way along Interstate 70 could be readily available for a track that requires less real estate than a high-speed rail line.
“The big hurdle is usually eminent domain issues,” Kelly said.
