2 big sections of Calif. high-speed rail line face delays

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The state agency behind California's proposed $43 billion high-speed rail line has recommended delaying the environmental impact report on segments running through two densely populated areas until at least next year.

California High-Speed Rail Authority CEO Roelof van Ark told the agency's board of directors at their Sacramento meeting Thursday that the delay is necessary due to the technical complexity of the San Francisco-to-San Jose and the Los Angeles-to-Anaheim sections of the 800-mile line.

The full story, by the Associated Press, appears on the San Jose Mercury News website.
