Calif. HSR called ‘project of the century’

LOS ANGELES — The proposed California high-speed rail project that would link Northern and Southern California was recently dubbed the “project of the century” because, experts said, it would cross two mountain ranges and a half-dozen earthquake faults, KCRA.com reported.

The first phase of the project is expected to run more than 500 miles between San Francisco and Los Angeles.
