Board OKs Extending California’s High-Speed Rail Line

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Officials have decided to extend the first segment of California’s planned high-speed rail line in the Central Valley to Bakersfield.

The California High-Speed Rail Authority board agreed unanimously Monday to spend an additional $616 million in federal funding on the extension.

Earlier this month, the federal government reallocated more than $1 billion in high-speed rail funding to California and 11 other states after Ohio and Wisconsin decided not to proceed with their rail projects.

Planners of California’s high-speed rail system say the extra funds will allow them to construct up to 123 miles from north of Fresno to Bakersfield, two major population centers in the Central Valley.
