WYE Madera County is a group of community leaders, elected officials and residents committed to ensuring the High-Speed Rail Authority’s job-creating heavy maintenance facility is located in Madera County, which is the cheaper, faster, smarter location for this important piece of infrastructure.
The Wye alignment in Madera County will serve as the backbone for California High-Speed Rail. Situated approximately 120 miles from San Jose and 140 miles from Bakersfield, the Wye will serve as the junction for regional and statewide connectivity, moving passengers and trains heading west, north and south. The proposed Wye right-of-way will span an estimated 12 square miles and will be located in Northern Madera County. Locating the region’s Heavy Maintenance Facility within close proximity to the Wye alignment will maximize maintenance, operational efficiency and cost savings, while providing access to a well-trained and job-ready regional workforce benefiting Fresno, Madera, Mariposa and Merced Counties.
As home to the WYE, Madera County is optimally situated to service trains on both the Sacramento and San Francisco lines more quickly, efficiently and cost effectively than other potential sites.
Yes, I support jobs and economic growth in Madera County, and I support locating the Authority’s job-creating heavy maintenance facility in Madera County, which is the CHEAPER, FASTER, SMARTER location for this important piece of infrastructure.
