- California High-Speed Rail Project, Burbank to Los Angeles Project Section
- A Statewide Program EIR/EIS (Tier 1) was certified in November 2005 as the first phase of a tiered environmental review process for the proposed California high-speed rail (HSR) system planned to provide a reliable high-speed electric-powered rail system that links the major metropolitan areas of the State and that delivers predictable and consistent travel times. A further objective is to provide an interface with commercial airports, mass transit, and the highway network and to relieve capacity constraints of the existing transportation system as increases in intercity travel demand in California occur, in a manner sensitive to and protective of California's unique natural resources. The California High-Speed Rail Authority (Authority) has prepared a Draft EIR/EIS that further examines the Burbank to Los Angeles Project Section at the project level (Tier 2), within Los Angeles County. The project examined is construction and operation of a grade-separated, electric powered, passenger, steel-wheel-on-steel- rail, high-speed railroad between Burbank and Los Angeles, including a station in the vicinity of Hollywood Burbank Airport and a station at Los Angeles Union Station (LADS). The HSR station at LADS is accommodated for in Metro's Link Union Station project, which includes shared lead tracks north of LADS and station platforms. See NOC for full document description.
