Right-Of-Way Issues Could Delay California HSR

A Sacramento judge has ruled that the environmental review for California's high-speed rail has failed to fully account for right-of-way delays involving Union Pacific trains.

Rod Diridon with the California High Speed Rail Authority says that the right-of-way issue is not serious.

"However, he warned that delays caused by lawsuits could derail immediate plans for portions of the $45 billion, 800-mile high-speed rail network that would connect Southern California with the Bay Area and Sacramento.

'Losing even one month in our schedule in this region could cause us to lose federal stimulus funds, Proposition 1A state funds and up to $3 billion worth of badly needed jobs in our state,' Diridon said."
