The High Desert Corridor (HDC) project is currently being proposed as an approximately 63-mile long, east-west multimodal and multipurpose transportation corridor that could include a freeway/expressway, toll lanes and/or High Speed Rail (HSR) feeder service, 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. The HDC project will also consider how a bike route and green energy production and transmission facilities can be incorporated into the corridor.
