California groundbreaking slated for high-speed rail system

California High-Speed Rail Authority officials along with government, community and business leaders will gather tomorrow in Fresno, Calif., for a ceremony marking the start of construction on the state's high-speed rail line.

Gov. Jerry Brown is scheduled to attend the ceremony, according to California news media. The event will be held at the site of a future rail station in Fresno to highlight the first segment of the entire line, which is expected to run between Los Angeles and San Francisco by 2029.

The project also calls for the authority to work with regional partners to implement a statewide rail plan that would invest billions in local and regional rail lines.
