High-speed rail could pass 75 feet over the 10 Freeway

The City Council discussed on Monday night a proposal for the high-speed rail linking San Francisco and San Diego to pass 75 feet above the 10 Freeway.

But, the Pasadena Star-News reports, high-speed rail officials said it's too early to tell how tall the structure will be.

"We have stressed to Alhambra and all San Gabriel Valley cities that the aerial alignment is not final and at this very early stage in the environmental process there are many details still yet to be pinned down," Rachel Wall, spokeswoman for the California High-Speed Rail, wrote in an e-mail to the Star-News.
