High-speed rail agency seeks contractors

 

The California High Speed Rail Authority has a goal to have 30 percent of the value of its contracts go to small businesses, especially those that are considered disadvantaged or run by disabled veterans, according to a workshop held in Menlo Park on Aug. 22.

The agency is seeking small businesses for contract work as construction is initiated on the first stretch of the statewide high-speed rail project.

The authority says it expects the first segment, between Silicon Valley and the Central Valley, to be operational by 2025.
