ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW AND PERMITTING STATUS
ESTIMATED COMPLETION DATE OF ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW AND PERMITTING
The Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) Capitol Expressway Transit Improvement Project would transform Capitol Expressway into a multi-modal boulevard offering bus rapid transit (BRT), light rail transit, and safe connections to the regional transit system. The project includes the following phases:
Phase 1A included pedestrian and bus improvements along Capitol Expressway that accommodate pedestrian access and improve safety. This phase of the project was completed in Fall 2012 and included new sidewalks, street lighting, and a landscaping buffer between the sidewalk and the roadway from Capitol Avenue to Quimby Road.
Phase 1B included the reconstruction of the Eastridge Transit Center beginning August 2013 and took slightly under 2 years to complete. Improvements to the transit center also support of the future Bus Rapid Transit (BRT). Expansion of the transit center began with relocating Eastridge Loop Road. Once that was complete, construction of the new transit center followed. The new center includes a new central walkway, a bike and pedestrian path, new landscaping with seat walls, new shelters with updated lighting and real time signage, and many more amenities.
Proposed Phase 2 would extend light rail from the existing Alum Rock Light Rail Station to the Eastridge Transit Center. Light rail would operate primarily in the center of Capitol Expressway with elevated track structures crossing Capitol Avenue, Story Road, and Tully Road. The Eastridge extension would include three stations: Story, Ocala, and Eastridge.
