Document Description
The project will extend light rail along Capitol Expressway between the existing Alum Rock Light Rail Station and Eastridge Transit Center, a distance of approximately 2.4 miles. Light rail will operate primarily in the median of Capitol Expressway within exclusive and semi-exclusive rights-of-way. To provide the additional right-of-way to accommodate light rail, high-occupancy vehicle lanes will be removed between Story Road and Tully Road. The project will include new light rail stations at Story Road (aerial) and Eastridge Transit Center (at-grade). The project will also include traction power substations at Ocala Avenue and Eastridge Transit Center. Relocation and replacement of a number of 115- kilovolt steel lattice electrical transmission towers with Tubular Steel Poles will be required for the project.
