Keeping travelers safe
Brightline West will be one of the safest forms of travel in the world and will help Nevada and California address safety issues on I-15. By shifting more than 700 million vehicle miles traveled from congested highways onto Brightline West, the system will eliminate 75 highway fatalities and injuries each year.
RAISING THE BAR ON SAFETY
- Zero at-grade crossings along the entire 218-mile protected corridor
- Extensive safeguards to prevent trespassing in the median of the I-15 corridor
- Decades-proven European Train Control System to match the impeccable safety record of international high-speed rail systems
- Grade-separated crossovers that will span the median between interchanges to provide access to northbound and southbound travel lanes for first responders and maintenance workers
