California High-Speed Rail Program Highlights Major Accomplishments of 2018




SACRAMENTO, Calif. -The California High-Speed Rail Authority (Authority) experienced changes, challenges and made significant progress on the nation’s first high-speed rail program in 2018. Starting with the appointment and new direction provided by Chief Executive Officer Brian P. Kelly in early 2018, the Authority demonstrated it’s committed to advancing the high-speed rail program by reaching several important milestones in the areas of construction in the Central Valley, as well as environmental reviews and local and regional partnerships in Northern and Southern California.
