California High Speed Rail Authority Seeks Input 80-Mile HSR Segment

February 28, 2020

The California High Speed Rail Authority has just released the first Draft Environmental Document for the Bakersfield to Palmdale segment of its Bay Area to Los Angeles high-speed line. Several public meetings are scheduled for March and April, and the CHSRA is accepting comments on the document through April 13.

The 80-mile segment, which passes through the Tehachapi mountain range and poses daunting engineering and construction challenges, “will provide a connection from the Central Valley to the Antelope Valley and Los Angeles County, closing the existing passenger rail gap between Northern and Southern California,” according to the CHSRA.
