Group Description

WELCOME. This site will give you construction updates on the California High Speed Rail and XpressWest. Also the ARTIC and Transbay Transit Center now under construction. Dates can change.
* * *
California High Speed Rail (San Francisco to Los Angeles)
On November 25, 2013, Judge Kenny stopped the selling of bonds locking state funds to further construction until a new financial plan is re-written. They must identify all funding the project needs to build Initial Operating Segment before construction begins this summer, if legal issues are resolved. Governor Brown has proposed using some cap-and-trade funds. Engineering, surveying and excavation work had begun in October 2013. Using federal funds, construction will begin from Ave. 17 NE of Madera to American Ave. south end of Fresno. Construction from Madera to north of Bakersfield must be completed by September 30, 2017 or risk losing the federal money. Segments will open for ridership. This generates revenue.
XpressWest (Victorville to Las Vegas, Victorville to Palmdale)
USDOT has decided to suspend further consideration of the XpressWest loan request due to failure of application in regard to the "Buy America" policy which required the use of American-made products. Paul Ryan and Jeff Session oppose of the XpressWest project. Developer indicated the project would proceed with financial plan.
ARTIC - Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center began construction September 18, 2012. Completion: November 2014.
Transbay Transit Center - Foundation work continues to early 2014. Construction of bus ramps begins. In summer, construction of Transit Center above ground superstructure begins. Completion: Autumn 2017.
