Bullet train ‘shovel ready’? Construction pushed back to 2014

Monday, August 12, 2013

California’s high-speed rail project is giving new meaning to the term “shovel ready.” It’s been three years since the Los Angeles-to-San Francisco bullet train was awarded stimulus funding from the Obama administration. Construction was supposed to start in early 2012. Then this spring. Then this summer. And now the LA Times says it looks like work won’t start until 2014.

All of which throws into question the Brown administration’s spongy $68-billion cost estimate.
