Document Description
Note: Extended Review Per Lead Note: Review Per Lead The applicant is proposing to construct, operate, and maintain an electric-powered, steel-wheel-on-steel-rail high-speed train (HST) system. The Fresno to Bakersfield Section of the California HST system would provide the public with electric-powered high-speed rail service that provides predictable and consistent travel times between major urban centers and connectivity to airports, mass transit, and the highway network in the southern San Joaquin Valley, and connect the northern and southern portions of the system. The approximately 114-mile long Fresno to Bakersfield Section in an essential part of the statewide HST system, connecting San Francisco and the Bay Area to Los Angeles and Anaheim. It will provide Fresno, Hanford, Visalia, Tulare, and Bakersfield access to a new transportation mode and will contribute to increased mobility throughout California. This section will connect the southern San Joaquin Valley region to the remainder of the HST system via Fresno, Kings, Tulare, and Kern counties.
