No date for rail line reopening in 2013 after a lack of resources
A federal judge ruled on Monday that the U.S. government cannot give the project time to get approved by the state on behalf of taxpayers because of a lack of sufficient money for construction.
Dylan L. Struck, who ran the federal government’s land management program for the Northern Pacific and Central California rail projects, filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Sacramento on Monday seeking reimbursement for money owed to the federal government for planning, permitting and other necessary work to reconstruct California’s rail syst영양출장샵 영양출장안마em.
“The Federal Government is not obligated to work with the Federal Government when it has the r안산안마esources to do so,” said Joseph G. Fenech Jr., acting attorney general of California, in a statement provided to NBCLA.
The project is expected to begin running in 2021, at which point construction would be complete, according to the federal lawsuit, filed Monday by Struck’s law firm, Fenech and Brownstein. The case concerns “The Future North West of the State of California,” an 18.5블랙 잭-mile segment of California’s Pacific Coast rail system that stretches from the San Francisco Bay to the border of the Los Angeles River.
An updated schedule for construction of the route, known as the Future North West Project, for both the Northern and Central California rail projects was scheduled to go on press-hold in the near future, the government’s motion claims.
The U.S. Department of Transportation was initially expected to have the opportunity to award an extension to the rail line to allow construction to get underway, but that effort has been dropped and a new timeline has been announced, according to the government.
The U.S. Department of Transportation has been criticized for failing to extend California’s rail line through an economic downturn during the last decade.
However, the Department of Homeland Security and its subcontractor, Caltrans, were ordered to spend some $900 million more for maintenance, repairs, and other maintenance for a portion of California’s rail line in the aftermath of the recession, which began in 2007, the government’s motion contends. Caltrans has since been paid for $639 million of that amount, and has received more than $400 million from a $250 million loan for the Northern California rail project.
The Northern California line is one of the four new rail projects on track for construction, with a full track planned by the end of next year, according to construction schedules provided to NBCLA. In Septembe
