High Speed Rail on the Ballot?

New, 21 comments

This November, California voters may have the option to vote on the State's High Speed Rail system. A proposed $9.95 billion bond measure could speed us on our way to the future and help out with some other projects. "Of the 9.95 billion dollars being raised from this bond issue, 950 million are for projects on existing rail services that could feed passengers to the HSR trains. The rest of the 9 billion will be for HSR. From Anaheim to Fullerton the HSR trains would run on the double track used by Metrolink and Amtrak. The tracks would be electrified, signaling upgraded for higher speeds and fully grade separated. Much the same would be done from Fullerton to just outside of downtown Los Angeles." [RPA C&N]
