Officials with California's High Speed Rail Authority recently held community open houses for the L.A. to Antelope Valley section of the route to give updates on the project. Station locations, otherwise known as alternatives, under consideration basically remain the same as before with two in Burbank at the downtown Metrolink station or at San Fernando Blvd. and Ontario St. and three others in the northeast Valley. Only one is expected to be chosen. But when will a decision finally be made? Probably a year from now. The state budget mess means the rail authority cannot begin environmental-impact work until money is approved, according to the Burbank Leader. At this point, those reports are expected to be finished sometime next Summer.
