At our recent Antelope Valley Transportation Summit hosted by my office, Caltrans provided updates to officials from the City of Palmdale, Lancaster, and our town councils, on the transportation projects being developed or constructed in the Antelope Valley. Local stakeholders heard presentations and asked questions to presenters from regional transportation agencies, including MTA, Caltrans, Metrolink, Los Angeles County Public Works, California High Speed Rail, and Antelope Valley Transit Authority. Representatives for the Los Angeles County Sheriff and California Highway Patrol also provided updates on road and highway safety. Click here: http://wp.me/s4yaUh-10511
We also discussed our trip to Washington, DC, and my meeting with U.S. Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx to discuss the development of Palmdale Airport into a regional air transportation facility that will link into the larger transportation network with connections to the future High Speed Rail system and High Desert Multimodal Corridor project between Palmdale and Victorville.
