Document Description
VTA's Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) Silicon Valley - Phase II Extension Project (Phase II Project) would be constructed in Santa Clara County. The 6-mile-long Phase II Project would begin at the terminus of the BART Silicon Valley - Phase I Berryessa Extension Project (Phase I Project) (currently under construction and scheduled to be operational in late 2017) south of Mabury Road in the City of San Jose. The Phase II Project would be at grade where it connects to the Phase I Project and then descend into approximately 5-mile-long subway tunnels that continue through downtown San Jose and terminate at grade in the City of Santa Clara near the Santa Clara Caltrain Station (See Figure 1). Four stations are proposed, three in San Jose, the Alum rock, Downtown San Jose, and Diridon Stations, and one in Santa Clara, the Santa Clara Station. Parking structures are proposed at the Alum Rock and Santa Clara Stations; "kiss-and-ride" (passenger drop-off) facilities are proposed at Alum Rock, Diridon, and Santa Clara Stations. The station facilities would include electrical ventilation systems as well as communication equipment. A Maintenance yard is proposed near the Santa Clara Station.
