It is projected that over 200 properties may be condemned for a high-speed rail project in California.  The California Public Works Board adopted 23 resolutions to acquire properties in Fresno, Madera, Kings and Tulare counties. The land, adding up to more than 115 acres, is deemed necessary by the California High-Speed Rail Authority for the first two construction segments of its statewide bullet-train network.  Since December 2013, the Public Works Board has adopted 230 such resolutions covering more than 625 acres of land in the four counties. The entire 520-mile line is estimated to cost about $68 billion by the time it is planned to be fully operational in 2028.
