Sapphos Environmental, Inc. is providing environmental oversight on behalf of California High Speed Rail Authority for the initial 22-mile-long Construction Package 4 (CP-4) section of the California High Speed Rail (CHSR) project, located in the San Joaquin Valley. CHSR will be the first project of its kind in the nation and will eventually extend to Sacramento and San Diego, totaling 800 miles and 24 stations. Work efforts include oversight of environmental compliance by the design-build team, NEPA/CEQA compliance and documentation, guidance related to proposed design changes/refinements, facilitation of interagency work efforts, on-site construction management, evaluation of deviations from the 2014 Fresno to Bakersfield EIS/EIR, and subsequent Alternative Technical Concepts.
