Los Angeles to Anaheim

Due to public health and safety requirements concerning the coronavirus (COVID-19), Los Angeles to Anaheim Revised NOP/NOI resources, and recordings of the Virtual Scoping Meetings, are available on the following online web portal, available through Sept. 24: www.meethsrsocal-la-a.org

UPDATE ON 8/25/2020: 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.

The Authority created an 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 resource will be available throughout the public comment period. To access the Los Angeles to Anaheim Project Section online open house go to: https://meethsrsocal-la-a.org/la-home

The Los Angeles to Anaheim project section connects Los Angeles and Orange counties from Los Angeles Union Station (LAUS) to the Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center (ARTIC) using the existing Los Angeles-San Diego-San Luis Obispo (LOSSAN) rail corridor. The LOSSAN Corridor is currently used by both passenger (Metrolink and Amtrak) and freight rail providers. Adding high-speed rail tracks enhances this shared urban rail corridor by improving safety and operations for rail and other users.

The approximately 30-mile corridor travels through the cities of Los Angeles, Vernon, Commerce, Bell, Montebello, Pico Rivera, Norwalk, Santa Fe Springs, La Mirada, Buena Park, Fullerton and Anaheim as well as portions of unincorporated Los Angeles County. It also supports the national and regional economy by facilitating cargo movements in and out of the two busiest Ports in the country - Los Angeles and Long Beach.
