Despite the COVID-19 pandemic and challenges around quarantine measures, California’s high-speed rail project continues to move forward, as shown in the Authority’s July 2020 construction update video.

More than 4,000 workers have been dispatched to 32 active sites along the 119-mile route of California’s high-speed rail system.

The California High-Speed Rail Authority is responsible for planning, designing, building and operation of the first high-speed rail system in the nation. The California high-speed rail line will connect the mega-regions of the state, contribute to economic development and a cleaner environment, create jobs and preserve agricultural and protected lands.

In the July 2020 Construction Update video (see below) work progress is shown on sites including the Fresno Trench/SR 180 Passageway, the San Joaquin River and Cedar Viaducts, the Melga Canal, and the Hanford and Wasco Viaducts.
