After a number of fits and starts, plans for a high-speed train connecting California and Las Vegas are back on track.
The announcement was made at the Nevada Economic Development Conference on Tuesday.
The train will travel at speeds up to 150 miles per hour, making the nonstop trip between the Victor Valley region of California and the Las Vegas Strip in about 75-90 minutes, according to Las Vegas ABC affiliate KTNV.
A representative from Virgin Trains USA, formerly known as Brightline, confirmed to ABC News that the company is on track to start construction in the first half of 2020.
