Anaheim (ARTIC) Station gets Federal $$$!

The Voice of OC website is reporting that ARTIC has been awarded $7.5Million to help build Anaheim's Transportation Hub to Amtrak, Metrolink, ARC, and the proposed, CAHSR and CA/NV Maglev line.

You can read the article here:

One of the issues that have come up will need to be evaluated by ARTIC is how they will be able to serve just AMTRAK and METROLINK while they wait for a few years (as the station will be completed before HSR arrives) for the CAHSR to decide on when HSR will be connected to Anaheim.  

If you remember the FRA was willing to give the project monies however, the monies had to be spent first on showcasing true High Speed, thus the route between Bakersfield and Fresno were selected first to be build.  The Anaheim station was originally selected to have HSR first.

October 24 is the last day that Environmental Assessment will be available for public viewing.  Please see the ARTICINFO page for exact location details.

Keep Flying On The Ground!
