Fresno's high-speed rail plans move forward
FRESNO, California (KFSN) -- Plans for high-speed rail through Fresno are moving forward.
The city council unanimously approved plans for the design of the system through Fresno. Plans call for the concrete bridges and supports to be designed attractive and modern.
"People can expect from what the council approved today a higher quality look for the high-speed rail corridor," said Scott Mozier. "Things like the bridges, what type of railing fencing, lighting fixtures, landscape features. The document says Fresno does not want it done on the cheap."
In addition to approving the design features for the high speed rail project through Fresno, the council approved paying a consultant nearly $2 million to work with city engineers to insure the design plans are implemented. The money would come from the California High-Speed Rail Authority.
Actual construction is scheduled to start in Fresno this summer.
