In the short term maybe, but it's the liberal NIMBYs in San Fran and LA that will end up killing it, not someone from the central valley.

Call it what you want, but any sane person knows the Central Valley opposition isn't what's going to kill off CAHSR, it will be the wealthy liberal NIMBYs around LA and San Francisco. I'd be more than willing to put my money where my mouth is, but this project is so slow I'll be retired before it finally dies for good.

Nothing is going to "kill off" California HSR. I'd tell you to have some faith or something, but it's unlikely that would work for you considering I'm fairly confident you're actually rooting for it's failure.

I recently read that the total cost may have jumped to about $88 billion, as the Southern California portion estimate has potentially increased by 50% since February and jumped by about $11 billion more. The total cost estimate is now 4x the state and federal funding available to finish the project.

-----

Palmdale to Burbank is now estimated over $20 billion, Burbank to L.A. - $3.55 billion, L.A. to Anaheim - $4.8 billion
*these numbers do not include the 15-20% inflation estimate that will increase these figures by the time construction is completed.

Well we are two years away from the country leaving this twilight zone and period of darkness and being led by a Democratic administration and Congress again, so I fully expect that a massive infrastructure bill that will take a big bite out of that figure is highly likely.

Of course they don't include inflation because that wouldn't make sense.

The peninsula challenges are basically over, Caltrain is doing electrification work. SF end of this is locked in. Pacheco is going to cost a mint but it will be done.

I'd say the only real at risk segment is Bakersfield to Burbank.
