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.
