Visualization of HSR through San Jose, I really can’t see why anyone would be upset.
Via Systemic Failure
Filed under Rail
I can’t say that I follow the California HSR stuff very closely, but it sounds like this was an option explored at the behest of some area politicians who wanted to avoid the use of eminent domain to take property. Clem of the Caltrain-HSR Compatibility Blog calls this “lazy engineering” by “civil engineers writing their own checks.” This would probably work just as well by putting the rail corridor at grade and building road over- or under-passes.
