VTA hosted an informational webinar on the BART Phase II Extension on May 23 from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.
VTA is extending the BART regional heavy rail system to Milpitas, San Jose and Santa Clara. The 16-mile extension will travel along the existing Union Pacific Railroad alignment south of the Warm Springs Station in Fremont to Milpitas and North San Jose, and then will tunnel underneath downtown San Jose rising to street level in Santa Clara. When completed, this fully grade-separated project will include six stations total: One in Milpitas, four in San Jose and one in Santa Clara; a 5-mile tunnel in downtown San Jose; and a new maintenance and storage facility in Santa Clara.
The biggest transportation infrastructure project in Santa Clara County history, VTA’s BART Phase II is anticipated to impact Silicon Valley for decades to come. The project recently surpassed some important milestones, including approval by both the VTA and BART board of Directors in April.
The May 23 webinar includes station information, anticipated construction schedule, project elements and more.
Participants are welcome to ask questions about the project during the webinar. After the webinar is finished, community members can share a recorded version with neighbors, coworkers, or anyone else that might be interested in learning about VTA’s BART Phase II project.
Additional webinars will be held to focus on project elements and community questions later in 2018 and throughout the life of the project, which has a target completion date of 2026.
