California High-Speed Rail: What Does America’s Largest Public Works Project Mean for Transportation Planners & Engineers?

California High-Speed Rail: What Does America’s Largest Public Works Project Mean for Transportation Planners & Engineers?
An ITE Learning Hub Webinar

This webinar will discuss the latest on the construction in Central Valley, the Caltrain Electrification Project, and the Merced to Gilroy Section. Capacity Implications like how many passengers are anticipated per hour, and how the passenger carrying capacity compares to that of a 10-lane freeway will be discussed. This webinar will also provide the latest information related to Station Area Development in Fresno and San Jose. 

Learning Objectives

  • Determine what High-Speed Rail, this new mode of transportation for the US, means for Transportation Planners and Engineers;
  • Determine how to calculate capacity on High-Speed Rail Systems in terms of passengers per hour, how to account for increasing the length and frequency of trains, and how to compare passenger throughput to a 10-lane freeway; and
  • Compare the station area development traffic characteristics of a rural agricultural economy like Fresno to that of a suburban technology economy like San Jose.
