LOS ANGELES — The California High Speed Rail Authority redrew its proposed routes for the Burbank-to-Palmdale section of the planned California bullet train, veering away from the communities of San Fernando and Sylmar, KPCC reported.

In June, about 300 members of the public attended an authority meeting in Los Angeles to protest the proposed routes. Many were from communities in the San Fernando Valley, where an above-ground track with high sound walls would have bisected towns, according to the report.

In the refined proposal, the route known as SR14 — because it shadows State Route 14 — would now travel underground until it reaches less populated areas, KPCC reported.
