Elevated tracks pulled from California high-speed rail plans

(The following appeared on the Fresno Bee website on May 5, 2011.)

SACRAMENTO, Calif. New changes to proposed high-speed train tracks through Fresno mean residents won't see miles of elevated rails above the city.

Instead, the only elevated tracks would be at the south end of Fresno to cross over Highway 99 as the route heads toward Hanford. Earlier proposals included as much as 14 miles of tracks running atop viaducts up to 60 feet above Fresno's streets.

The plans approved Thursday by the California High Speed Rail Authority also include an alternative site for a passenger station in downtown Fresno.
