Construction/Engineering: Tutor Perini (High Speed Rail)

On day 3 of the Construction and Engineering week, ePathway Academy students visited Tutor Perini, the General Contractor for building the first High Speed Rail in the United States. Fresno is ground zero for construction on the rail system and under the guidance of Toni Tinoco, we were able to visit several worksites to observe the construction process. Hundreds of workers are currently involved in the building of the system, not counting an additional number of ancillary jobs created by the construction. We learned about the proposed rail lines, how HSR will transform living and transportation for the citizens of California, and the economic development that results around stations and movement of people between cities. Thanks to Toni and Cody for providing an upfront seat to witness the future of California! #iwillride
