Fox 11 Special On High-Speed Rail: Taken For A Ride

Posted: Updated:

We continue our investigation of California's high-speed rail project, the biggest public works project in state history. Set to being construction this year, the bullet train project is fraught with money woes, delays and an aggressive schedule. But its leaders have a vision that they say will work for the good of California.

Part One

Follow the Money: Congress promises no more money for California's high-speed rail, but the $68 billion dollar project can only currently count on about six billion dollars in state and federal funding. So what's the plan?

Part Two

Delays: The rail authority's own project managers in legal documents voice concerns over meeting federal deadlines, and a Fox 11 investigation reveals that may mean California taxpayers will be on the hook to repay billions in federal money.

Part Three

The Fight Over Eminent Domain: Central Valley farmers affected by the bullet train project say they plan to fight the rail authority, despite the government's ability to force property owners to part with land due to eminent domain laws.

Part Four

The Vision: Rail authority chairman Dan Richard shares his ideas on additional funding sources to help pay for the multi-billion dollar project.
