Next Steps


The public review period for the Burbank to Los Angeles Project Section Draft Environmental Impact Report/Environmental Impact Statement (EIR/EIS) closed on August 31, 2020. The Final Environmental Impact Report/Environmental Impact Statement (EIR/EIS) was issued on November 5, 2021. Please visit the California High-Speed Rail Authority website for more information.

This is an archive of the Open House website that was available from May 29, 2020 to August 31, 2020. The Authority created this website to provide enhanced access to the Draft EIR/EIS in response to health and safety directives concerning the novel coronavirus. This website remains available to the public, although visitors may no longer submit a comment on the Draft EIR/EIS, schedule an appointment, or participate in a webinar (these features are no longer active on this site).

After the conclusion of the public comment period, the Authority will:

  • Prepare responses to comments

  • Revise the environmental document as needed and include responses to comments

  • Consider approval of the project and issue a Record of Decision (NEPA) and Notice of Determination (CEQA)

  • Stay up-to-date with California High Speed Rail by following the Authority on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.
