HSR claims that they can operate within the existing right of way. If they can't then they will have to pay the displaced property owners lots of money - and even more if the property has been developed than if it is vacant.

IF HSR really needs a wider right of way then the wise thing to do would be to buy it now - however HSR has no money for such acquisitions and the right of way acquisitions it is now trying to make in the central valley are not going smoothly. I suspect peninsula acquisitions would be both much more difficult and vastly more expensive.
