Small Business Participation

The Authority is committed to enhancing benefits for California community businesses and residents during construction of the project. To that end the Authority has set an aggressive 30 percent goal for Small Business participation, which includes goals of 10 percent for Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE) and 3 percent for Disabled Veteran Business Enterprises (DVBE).

Relocation of State Route 99

Portions of State Route (SR) 99 located within the CP 1 contract limits will need to be realigned to accommodate the high-speed rail project between the existing SR 99 and the Union Pacific Railroad. Additionally, the project will improve traffic operations, reduce congestion, and enhance traffic safety in the region. In January 2013, the Authority signed an agreement with the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) to complete the realignment process.
