The High Desert Corridor (HDC) project is currently being proposed as an approximately 63‐mile long, east–west multipurpose transportation corridor that could accommodate a highway, an energy production and/or transmission facilities and a high speed rail feeder service line, between State Route 14 in
Los Angeles County and State Route 18 in
San Bernardino County. The project aims to improve mobility and access for people and goods in the rapidly growing Antelope, Victor, and Apple Valley areas of Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties, including the cities of Palmdale, Lancaster,
and the Town of Apple Valley.
In addition, efforts are underway to identify local routes for a bicycle facility that can connect cities and unincorporated area bicycle master plans throughout the HDC.
The HDC is also considering how to integrate the following proposed modes of transportation and additional project features to create a multipurpose corridor: Highway/Expressway, High Speed Rail Feeder Service, Bicycle Route, Green Energy, and Toll Road. For definitions of these features and additional project details, please visit the Metro project website:
When on the map’s main page, you have the advantage of viewing the project
area from an aerial view and how the High Desert Corridor main alignment and variations
are mapped out across Los Angeles and San Bernardino Counties. By moving your mouse
across the map on the landing page, you can select which county you would like to
After selecting a county, you will zoom into the second level and be able to view
the cities, variations and proposed on/off ramps in the project area by selecting
an option from the drop down menu.
You also can simply hover over the desired city, variation or on/off ramp and click
on the highlighted portion to begin interacting with a more detailed view of your
After you have made your selection you can begin exploring the area by viewing it

están detalladas a lo largo de los Condados de Los Ángeles y San Bernardino. Mueva
el mouse o ratón a los largo del mapa y haga clic en el condado que le gustaría
explorar en detalle.
Al seleccionar un condado pasará a un mapa del segundo nivel, en el cual podrá ver
las ciudades, variaciones y rampas de entrada y de salida en el área del proyecto.

How to use this map?
The alignments shown on this map are the main physical, geometric alignment in addition to the five variations (A, B, B1, D, E), and two options for a high-speed rail component. There are five functional alternatives, in addition to the required No Build and TSM/TDM, that change how the alignment would operate. The following describes the details of the variation and functional alternatives.
For purposes of the environmental documents, the following five project alternatives are being evaluated based on how they would operate and function, in addition, the requisite No-Build and TSM/TDM Alternatives are also being evaluated for comparison:
Freeway/Expressway Alternative (Avenue P-8, I-15 and SR-18)
This Alternative would function as a combination of a controlled-access freeway and an expressway.
Freeway/Tollway Alternative (Avenue P-8, I-15 and SR-18)
This Alternative would function as a controlled-access freeway including sections of tollway operations, proposed between 100th St. East and US-395.
Freeway/Expressway Alternative with High Speed Rail Feeder Service
This Alternative is the same as the Freeway/Expressway Alternative, with the addition of a proposed High Speed Rail (HSR) Feeder Service that would connect the proposed California High Speed Rail and XpressWest Rail projects between Palmdale and Victorville.
Freeway/Tollway Alternative with High Speed Rail Feeder Service
This Alternative is the same as the Freeway/Expressway Alternative with High Speed Rail Feeder Service including sections of tollway operations, proposed between 100th St. East and US-395.
Hybrid Corridor Alternative
This Alternative would consist of a combination of all of the previously identified alternatives – resulting in a solution that is pieced together to best fit the needs of each section of the corridor. The determination of which elements to use, and at which locations, would be based on the results of the traffic study, environmental studies, and public input.
The No-Build (No Action) Alternative represents future travel conditions without the HDC project, and is the baseline against which the other alternatives are measured.
Transportation System/Transportation Demand Management (TSM/TDM) Alternative
The TSM/TDM alternative proposes a collection of several segmented and lower-cost roadway improvements that would connect SR-14 with SR-138, and further extend east connecting with US- 395, I-15 and SR -18. The following improvements would maintain at-grade intersections with local roads and driveways:
