California HST - Palmdale to Los Angeles
Environmental Impact Statement
For the proposed High Speed Train (HST) system, the Authority certified the Final Program EIR and issued a decision, and FRA issued a Record of Decision in November 2005 on the Final Program EIS. The FRA and Authority selected the HST Alternative for further project level environmental review and selecting corridor alignments and potential station locations, including a corridor between Palmdale and Los Angeles. For more information see the page for the Program EIR/EIS
The preparation of the project level Palmdale – Los Angeles HST EIR/EIS will involve development of preliminary engineering designs and assessment of environmental effects associated with the construction, operation, and maintenance of the HST system, including track, ancillary facilities and stations, along the previously selected Palmdale – Los Angeles corridor.
