And if it's going to the expense to build that much track, it should become a segment of a fully functioning route later on, he said Wednesday at the Columbus Metropolitan Club forum.

I remain decidedly unconvinced about the viability of the project, but I'm always interested in hearing how it's progressing.
I was on a longer vacation a couple years ago in DAB and thought about coming home for a couple days to go to a friend's annual fly-in and considered LCK, DAY, and CVG on G4 for a quick trip from SFB. The trip didn't happen and one of the disqualifiers for LCK was there was no Enterprise shuttle from the nearest location to the airport on Sundays (CVG would've been the airport of choice- I could've been up and back in 36 hours).
The only thing I can think of is they need a testbed and, by connecting LCK to CMH, travelers could then connect to the AirConnect service to downtown, have easier access to a larger chunk of town or much more choice of rental cars.
