Note: Review Per Lead
The California High-Speed Rail Authority (Authority) proposes to construct and operate the Merced to Fresno Section: Central Valley Wye as part of the larger, 800-mile California HighSpeed Rail (HSR) system planned throughout California. The HSR system will connect the major population centers of Sacramento, the San Francisco Bay Area, the Central Valley, Los Angeles, the Inland Empire, Orange County, and San Diego. As part of the Merced to Fresno Section of the statewide HSR system, the Central Valley Wye would create the east-west HSR connection between the San Jose to Merced Section to the west and the north-south Merced to Fresno Section to the east.
