San Francisco to San José - California High Speed Rail - with links to the other segments' pages.

That is indeed correct about the FEIR/EIS releases. All done for SF - SJ - Merced and Bakersfield - Palmdale - Burbank - LA .

They are still working on LA - Anaheim, however. From Los Angeles to Anaheim - California High Speed Rail
On May 16, 2024, the Authority’s Board of Directors was presented with the Staff Recommended Preferred Alternative, the Shared Passenger Track Alternative A, for the Los Angeles to Anaheim Project Section for identification in the Draft Environmental Impact Report/Environmental Impact Statement (DEIR/EIS).

The California High Speed Rail Authority’s board of directors supported new recommendations for a planned rail segment between Los Angeles and Anaheim, clearing it for a critical environmental review after the initial proposal received pushback from the community.
...
Recommendations for the 33-mile rail segment from Los Angeles to Anaheim includes four mainline tracks that would be used by the bullet train, other passenger rail and BNSF freight trains. It eliminates the initial plan to develop a freight facility for BNSF, which owns the railroad stretch from Los Angeles to Anaheim, in the city of Colton that would have housed trains not in operation. The idea received pushback from the Colton community and from BNSF.
...
I grew up in LA. I took the Golden State Freeway more than once to Disneyland or Knotts. I’ve come in on the La-Fullerton route more than once.

The bloody route is good for more than 20MPH. Why don’t we let BNSF and this weeks owners of the ex Santa Fee figure out how to get an extra 15-20 mph out of the line and cut the transit time to near I-5 speeds?
Why spend billions in the valley, then skimp on the city, where viaducts etc probably have the most payback?

Because the State and the project continue to run out of money without a lot to show for it?
