The initial segment will begin in the Central Valley and incorporate as many as 120 miles depending on which of the alternative alignments are selected.
- Through Corcoran OR Corcoran Bypass
- West of Allensworth Park OR along BNSF east of Allensworth Park
- Through Wasco & Shafter OR Wasco & Shafter Bypass
The first segment will begin near Madera, north of Fresno, and end in Shafter, about 10 miles north of Bakersfield. If the more expensive alignments are selected the track will only be about 90 miles and stop at Allensworth. Alignment selection will be made after all environmental studies have been completed.
