California high-speed authority contracts environmental/engineering teams for three segments

The California High Speed Rail Authority (CHSRA) continues to advance environmental work for its proposed $10 billion, 700-mile high-speed rail system. Yesterday, the authority chose three teams to complete environmental analyses and preliminary engineering on three segments of the statewide line.

DMJM + Harris won a contract for the Sacramento-to-Fresno segment; a URS Corp./Hatch Mott MacDonald/Arup consortium, the Fresno-to-Palmdale section; and HNTB Corp., the Los Angeles-to-San Diego corridor.

In December, CHSRA selected two teams to conduct environmental and engineering work on the Los Angeles-to-Orange County and Los Angeles-to-Palmdale segments. In total, the authority expects to hire six to eight environmental and engineering teams for the entire project, depending on results of an ongoing Bay Area-to-Central Valley environmental analysis.
