環境影響報告/環境影響報告草案

The Palmdale to Burbank Project Section Draft Environmental Impact Report/Environmental Impact Statement (EIR/EIS) will be available for a public review period pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) beginning September 2, 2022 and ending November 1, 2022. The California High-Speed Rail Authority (Authority) will consider all comments received on the Draft EIR/EIS and respond to substantive comments on the Draft EIR/EIS in the Final EIR/EIS.

The environmental review, consultation, and other actions required by applicable federal environmental laws for this project are being or have been carried out by the State of California pursuant to 23 U.S. Code 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) dated July 23, 2019, and executed by the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) and the State of California. Under that MOU, the Authority is the project’s lead agency under NEPA. Prior to the July 23, 2019 MOU, the FRA was the NEPA lead agency. The Authority is also the lead agency under CEQA.

全州計劃(一級)EIR/EIS 於 2005 年完成,作為擬議的加州高速鐵路 (HSR) 系統分層環境審查過程的第一階段,該系統計劃提供可靠的高速電動鐵路系統,連接該州的主要大都市區,並提供可預測且一致的旅行時間。另一個目標是提供與商業機場、公共交通和高速公路網絡的接口,並隨著加利福尼亞城際旅行需求的增加,以一種敏感和保護加利福尼亞獨特自然資源的方式緩解現有交通系統的容量限制。 2008 年完成了第二個項目級別(第 1 層)EIR/EIS,重點是灣區和中央山谷之間的聯繫;管理局根據 CEQA 修訂了該文件並於 2012 年完成。基於計劃 EIR/EIS,管理局選擇了首選走廊和車站位置以推進進一步研究。

The Authority has prepared a project-level (Tier 2) EIR/EIS that further examines the Palmdale to Burbank Project Section. The approximately 31-38 mile Project Section would provide HSR service between Palmdale, near the vicinity of Spruce Court just west of Sierra Highway in the north, and the Burbank Airport Station in the south. This HSR station would provide links with regional and local mass transit services as well as connectivity to airports and the highway networks within Los Angeles County. The Project Section would connect the Northern and Southern portions of the Statewide HSR system.

This Draft EIR/EIS evaluates the impacts and benefits of a No Project Alternative and six Build Alternatives. The Authority’s Preferred Alternative under NEPA, which serves as the proposed project for CEQA, is the SR14A Build Alternative. The Preferred Alternative would follow an alignment that heads southwest from Spruce Court in the city of Palmdale through the Angeles National Forest, including the San Gabriel Mountains National Monument, and then continues into the San Fernando Valley where it would connect with the approved Burbank Airport HSR station.
