The California High-Speed Rail Program represents the largest, most complex and, in many ways, most far-reaching public infrastructure project in the United States. As the backbone of an integrated, modern, state-wide rail network, it will fundamentally transform how people move around California and will serve as a catalyst for the state’s future development, growth and prosperity. Scott Jarvis, Chief Engineer for the California High-Speed Rail Authority, provides details of construction progress.
Construction progress: It’s happening
More than two years have passed since the California High-Speed Rail Authority1 (Authority) officially broke ground on construction in California’s Central Valley. Construction crews are making progress at 13 sites that span 119 miles in the Central Valley and three design-build construction teams are working between Madera and Kern Counties on contracts valued at $3. 24 billion.
