The high-speed rail station in Merced is located adjacent to State Route 99 and the Union Pacific Rail Road line on Martin Luther King Jr. Way/ Highway 59 and the State Route 99 interchange.
The City of Merced and the Authority are working together to develop a station area plan serving downtown Merced, U.C. Merced, Merced County and the upper Central Valley. This joint effort will create a vision for the station and the station area. It will also develop analysis and plans to generate economic and station area development through enhanced access to existing local and regional systems.
