USDOT obligates nearly $2.3 billion in HSR funds for California


Yesterday, the U.S. Department of Transportation signed a grant agreement with the California High Speed Rail Authority, obligating $2.272 billion in high-speed rail stimulus funds, according to Federal Railroad Administration spokesman Warren Flatau.

CHSRA will use the funds for design/build work on the Fresno-Bakersfield portion of the statewide corridor. The obligation does include about $600 million in funds originally intended for Wisconsin and Ohio, says Flatau.
