How will VTA support small businesses during construction?

VTA is using innovation to minimize impact to small businesses. VTA and BART chose the single-bore tunnel construction methodology to reduce street-level impacts to the extent feasible that historically impacted businesses during large scale transit twin-bore construction projects. Single-bore tunneling methodology largely avoids the lengthy street disruptions of traditional transit projects and confines most construction to off-street parcels. The Phase II Project will more closely resemble traditional building construction since most work will take place off-street with temporary lane and sidewalk closures anticipated.
