The California High-Speed Rail Authority was created in 1996 with the goal of connecting California’s major metropolitan areas with a world-class high-speed train that would travel across the state at speeds of up to 220 miles per hour. This goal moved closer to reality when Californians passed Proposition 1A in November 2008, funding high-speed rail with $9 billion in bond funds. The Obama administration expressed their support for California’s project by awarding the project $2.25 billion in stimulus funds earlier this year.
Planning for California’s high-speed train system is well underway, with a 10-year work plan in
place for the build-out of Phase 1, which is a 500-mile stretch of track running from San Francisco, through the Central Valley, to Los Angeles and then to Anaheim. The Palmdale to Los Angeles section of California’s high-speed train project – the largest public infrastructure project in the nation – is 60 miles long. It starts in Palmdale and runs southwest to Sylmar and then south to Los Angeles Union Station, where it will connect with the Los Angeles to Anaheim and Los Angeles to San Diego sections.
Join us for an informative meeting to learn about the California High-Speed Rail. The presentation will discuss the project and touch on the proposed route alignments, station designs, the benefits, costs, as well as environmental issues and benefits.
