Upcoming High Speed Rail community meetings in April and May

In April and May, the California High-Speed Rail Authority will be hosting Community Open House meetings on the range of alternatives being considered for the segments from San Francisco to San Jose and San Jose through Merced.   The meetings for each segment will be identical in format and content.

Some of the issues for review include:
* the vertical alignment for the approach to Diridon, and further south
* passing track options, including how they will affect service quality for Caltrain
* a train storage and maintenance yard proposed for Brisbane, and how it will affect land use plans in Brisbane

What other questions do you have? Feel free to share in comments.

The meetings will be held from 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. with a formal presentation starting at 6:00 p.m.
