20 DIFT Costs A Public / Private Partnership Terminals$248 million Rail connections$ 99 million Highway connections$ 92 million Land acquisition$100 million Total$539 million Approximately 60% public / 40% private

21 DIFT Benefits More efficient transportation system Jobs gained (permanent & construction) Fewer long haul trucks on I-94 & I-75 Elimination of two at-grade rail crossings Elimination of controversial terminal gate More direct access to freeways Government revenue gain
