Eight-lane arterial roadway with HOV lanes, bordered by low density residential, open space, a general aviation airport, retail

Document Description
Light rail extension along Capitol Expressway from Alum Rock Station to Eastridge Transit Center. Light rail will operate primarily in the median of Capitol Expressway within exclusive and semi-exclusive rights-of-way. Property acquisition for the project will be minimized through the removal of two HOV lanes on Capitol Expressway. The alignment will include an elevated section that will extend north of Capitol Avenue to south of Story Road and an elevated crossing of Tully Road. New light rail stations will be located at Story Road (aerial) and Eastridge Transit Center (at-grade). At Eastridge Mall, the Park-and-Ride lot will be expanded to accommodate increased demand. The project will also include traction power substations at Ocala Avenue and Eastridge Transit Center.
