This is an archive of the Open House website that was available from August 25, 2020 to September 24, 2020. The Authority created this website to provide enhanced access to the Notice of Preparation/Notice of Intent (NOP/NOI) 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a comment on the Notice of Preparation/Notice of Intent (NOP/NOI) or participate in a webinar (these features are no longer active on this site).
The environmental review, consultation, and other actions required by applicable federal environmental laws for this project are being or have been carried out by the State of California pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated July 23, 2019 and executed by the Federal Railroad Administration and the State of California.
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. Those facilities are being added now, so additional scoping to obtain public and other stakeholder feedback and information to inform the environmental review process is appropriate. The Notice of Preparation/Notice of Intent (NOP/NOI) was released on August 25, 2020 and will be available for a public review period ending September 24, 2020. Click here to access the NOP/NOI.
The Authority created this online open house to provide enhanced access to project information in response to health and safety directives concerning the novel coronavirus. We recommend using a computer browser for the best viewing experience.
This online open house will be available throughout the public comment period. Recordings of the Telephone Town Hall held on September 3 and scoping meetings held on September 10 and 12 are available here.
