Why Should California’s High Speed Rail Start in San Joaquin Valley?

Posted by Infra on Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

No matter whom you ask—state or local elected leader, economic developer, community member–someone has an opinion on the California high speed rail project.

Approved by voters in November of 2008, it has now become one of the most talked about infrastructure projects in the state.

In July, Governor Jerry Brown signed a construction financing bill for the initial stage of the project, which will be used to build an initial 130-mile track of high-speed line in the Central Valley.

Once completed, the system would serve major cities including Sacramento, Stockton, San Francisco, San Jose, Fresno, Bakersfield, Palmdale, Los Angeles, Anaheim, Riverside, Irvine, and San Diego.

California Forward recently caught up with the Mayor of Fresno and the lead executive of the California Partnership for the San Joaquin Valley at the second annual Regional Economic Forum. They gave their two cents on the project. – caforward on YouTube
