Construction Package 4 (CP-4)
Construction Package 4 is the third Design-Build construction contract released on the California High-Speed Rail Project. Located within the counties of Tulare and Kern, centered in the city of Wasco, CP-4 was issued its Notice to Proceed in Spring 2016 and construction has been well on its way. The project’s northern terminus is approximately one mile north of the Tulare-Kern County Line and extends 22 miles in length to the southern terminus at Poplar Avenue, just north of the city of Shafter.
The Project consists of at-grade, retained fill, and aerial rail sections. Relocating and re-purposing existing BNSF tracks, reconstructing selected roadways, and creating waterway and wildlife crossings, CP-4 consists of 14 structures- overpasses, underpasses, and viaducts; including a +2,000’ long pergola south of the city of Wasco. CP-4 is building the foundation for the future high-speed rail track and systems package.
