California Choo-Choo (Cont’d.)

Remember the California bullet train whose construction was to start in 2012? “Now it appears that serious construction may not begin this year, and could be delayed to 2014.”

“Factors contributing to the sluggish start include delays in gettingĀ  a construction company under contract and lack of key federal permits. “That includes permits from the Corps of Engineers allowing the railroad to cross rivers and waterways between Merced and Fresno.” Ralph Vartabedian, Extended Delays for Bullet Train, L.A. Times, August 12, 2013, at p. AA1.
