A report will be released Thursday analyzing alternative alignments for the San Jose-to-San Francisco segment of the proposed high-speed rail system.
Prepared by the staff of the California High-Speed Rail Authority, the report will include the Menlo Park and Atherton parts of the route.
"This information should include much more detailed analyses of the pros and cons of the potential alignment alternative designs ('at grade,' elevated, and tunnel/trench) for the HSR tracks," said Menlo Park Councilman John Boyle in a Sunday e-mail.
The report will be presented at the authority's board meeting, starting at 9 a.m. Thursday, April 8, at the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors' Chambers at 70 West Hedding St. in San Jose.
"We'll no doubt have follow-up forums and events held locally, but the first look at this information will be available to the public at this board meeting," Mr. Boyle said.
