The task force voted Thursday in favor of high speed rail coming in along Norfolk Southern's lines, which run to the west of Capital Boulevard.
Norfolk Southern's route would close Jones Street to all traffic including pedestrians and would demolish dozens of businesses along that route.
The CSX route would make three major changes to Glenwood South's landscape --West Street and Harrington Street would be closed at the tracks to both cars and pedestrians. Both of the closings would have huge implications for residents who live in a nearby apartment complex on Harrington Street and on a huge bridge on Jones Street spanning two blocks in either direction.
The North Carolina Department of Transportation has said it encourages the public to share their thoughts, questions and concerns with staff at the meetings. The department will collect and analyze their input, and use it to help shape the future of the corridor.
