Design-Build Construction Packages
The high-speed rail system is being built through a series of design-build contracts. Work within a design-build contract cannot begin until a project section has been environmentally cleared. Currently, the Authority has identified four design build contracts in the Central Valley. Construction updates and road closure alerts are posted on BuildHSR.com.
- Construction Package 1 (HSR 13-06)
Construction Package 1 (CP 1) is the first significant construction contract executed on the Initial Operating Section of the high-speed rail program. The CP1 construction area is a 32-mile stretch between Avenue 19 in Madera County to East American Avenue in Fresno County. It includes 12 grade separations, 2 viaducts, 1 tunnel and a major river crossing over the San Joaquin River.
- Construction Package 2-3 (HSR 13-57)
Construction Package 2-3 (CP 2-3) is the second significant construction contract executed on the Initial Operating Section of the high-speed rail program. The CP 2-3 construction area extends approximately 60 miles from the terminus of Construction Package 1 at East American Avenue in Fresno to one mile north of the Tulare-Kern County line. CP 2-3 will include approximately 36 grade separations in the counties of Fresno, Tulare and Kings, including viaducts, underpasses and overpasses.
- Construction Package 4 (HSR 14-32)
Construction Package 4 (CP 4) is the third significant construction contract executed on the Initial Operating Section of the high-speed rail program. The CP 4 construction area is a 22-mile stretch bounded by a point approximately one mile north of the Tulare/Kern County Line at the terminus of Construction Package 2-3 and Poplar Avenue to the south. CP 4 will include construction of at-grade, retained fill and aerial sections of the high-speed rail alignment and the relocation of four miles of existing Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) tracks.
