Document Description
Note: This NOP Rescinds SCH#2008122079 NOP. The San Francisco to San Jose High-Speed Train blended project would follow the Caltrain right-of-way from San Francisco to San Jose, sharing track with Caltrain. It would utilize existing and in-progress infrastructure developed by Caltrain for its electrification project, but require additional construction above and beyond electrification. The Blended System Project is anticipated to include track improvements to support higher speeds, curve straightening, passing tracks, a terminal storage facility, and grade crossing safety improvements. It would operate at up to 110 mph, with up to 4 HSR trains per hour/per direction in the peak period. HSR stations would be located at 4th & King, Millbrae, and San Jose Diridon. These existing stations would be upgraded with raised and straightened platforms, safety features, and passenger facilities to serve HSR.
