What High Speed Rail could look like in Burbank | Image by CHSR

The California High-Speed Rail Authority announced the completion of the route yesterday. The project has been some 10 years in the making and this November, Proposition 1 (pdf) on the ballot will help determine the future of the project that would take passengers between San Francisco and Los Angeles in about 2 hours and 40 minutes by 2030. The last step was to connect the Bay Area to the Central Valley via Pacheco Pass.
