Construction Package 4 (CP 4) is the third significant construction contract executed on the Initial Operating Section of the high-speed rail program. The CP 4 construction area is a 22-mile stretch bounded by a point approximately one mile north of the Tulare/Kern County Line at the terminus of Construction Package 2-3 and Poplar Avenue to the south. CP 4 will include construction of at-grade embankments, retained fill overcrossings and viaducts, aerial sections of the high-speed rail alignment and the relocation of four miles of existing Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) tracks.
The California High-Speed Rail Authority (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).
