High-Speed Rail One Step Closer
California’s high-speed rail project is moving a little closer to reality. A state board has approved likely routes.
Wednesday, January 26, 2005
The California High-Speed Rail Authority yesterday adopted routes and station locations that will be used in detailed environmental reviews for the 700-mile system, which would link Sacramento, San Francisco, Fresno, Los Angeles and San Diego with trains running at top speeds of more than 200 mph. The board's so-called preferred route would run down the Central Valley from Sacramento, through Palmdale to Los Angeles and then take an inland path through Riverside to San Diego. There also would be lines running to Irvine in Orange County and from the Central Valley to the Bay Area. Steve Milne - KXJZ news.
