Los Angeles to Anaheim Project Section Overview

Phase 1 of the California High-Speed Rail Authority System will connect San Francisco to Anaheim. The Los Angeles to Anaheim Project Section is the southernmost link connecting Los Angeles Union Station to the Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center (ARTIC) using the existing shared Los Angeles-San Diego-San Luis Obispo urban rail corridor. This corridor currently supports passenger and freight rail services including Metrolink, Amtrak and BNSF Railway (BNSF). The Project will include an environmental review of four High-Speed Rail stations: Los Angeles Union Station, Norwalk/Santa Fe Springs, Fullerton and Anaheim ARTIC.

In 2018, the California High-Speed Rail Authority (Authority) approved a preferred alternative to the Los Angeles to Anaheim Project Section. To accommodate projected passenger rail and freight train volumes, two additional project components have been added to the environmental analysis. These components include the construction of a new intermodal facility further east in Colton and staging tracks in the unincorporated area of Lenwood, near Barstow. The project scoping in 2007 did not include facilities in Colton and Lenwood, however, through recent scoping efforts, these components have been added. The scoping process was complete in September 2020.

Archived scoping information and material from 2020 can be found here.

Throughout the project development process, the Authority continues to engage stakeholders and the community. The next series of public outreach will include project update meetings and activities targeted throughout 2021 and 2022, with the draft environmental documents anticipated release in 2022.
