Document Description
BART is proposing to construct an extension of the Fremont BART line. The proposed project is the BART extension from the existing Fremont BART station 5.4 miles south to a proposed Warm Springs Station, with an optional station at Irvington. The proposed project alignment would generally parallel portions of the UP railroad corridor (which contains the former Western Pacific (WP) and Southern Pacific (SP) railroad tracks) and Interstates 680 and 880 in southern Alameda County. The initial segment would begin on an embankment at the southern end of the existing elevated Fremont BART Station. The alignment would pass over Walnut Avenue on an aerial structure and descend into a cut-and-cover subway north of Stevenson Boulevard. The alignment would continue southward in the subway structure under Fremont Central Park and the eastern arm of Lake Elizabeth, and surface to grade between the former WP and SP alignments north of Paseo Padre Parkway. The alignment would pass over Paseo Padre Parkway on a bridge structure, and then continue southward at grade, passing under a grade-separated Washington Boulevard. From Washington Boulevard, the proposed project alignment would continue at grade along the former WP alignment south to a terminus at Warm Springs and South Grimmer Boulevards in the Warm Springs district.
