CA HSR - Design-Build Construction Package 1, Fresno to Madera


Tutor Perini / Zachry / Parsons (TPZP)

The California High-Speed Rail (HSR) Authority is developing an 800-mile high-speed train system that will operate at speeds of up to 220 miles per hour, connecting the state’s major urban centers.

MVE has been contracted to provide land surveying, construction staking, and monument preservation for the California High-Speed Rail Authority’s Construction Package 1 (CP1). This is the first significant construction contract executed on the Initial Operating Section of the High-Speed Rail project in California’s Central Valley.

The contract value for CP1 is approximately $985 million, with an additional $53 million in provisional sums. The construction area spans a 32-mile stretch from Avenue 19 in Madera County to East American Avenue in Fresno County, including major work elements in downtown Fresno. This includes 12 roadway/railroad grade separations, two mainline viaducts, one tunnel, realignments of existing railroad tracks, utility relocations, roadway relocations, two trench sections, and a major river crossing over the San Joaquin River.

The design and construction efforts for this important project will maximize mobility for users, significantly reduce congestion, improve quality of life, and bolster the Central Valley’s economy. Completion of this initiative is expected in 2025.
