High-Speed Rail

High-speed rail work on Fresno highways moves along, but at higher costs

Contractors for the California High-Speed Rail Authority have started widening the shoulders of Highway 180 north of downtown Fresno, preparing for the excavation of a trench to carry high-speed train tracks under the freeway. A few miles north, work by Caltrans to relocate a 2-mile stretch of Highway 99 to make room for high-speed trains is going to cost about $35 million more than originally estimated.
