Document Description
The San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART) and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) intend to prepare a joint Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) for enhanced transit service in eastern Contra Costa County. Service is proposed to follow an alignment in the State Route 4 median between the Pittsburg/BayPoint BART Station and Loveridge Road, and then to Byron via the Union Pacific Mococo Line, with a single track service between the Hillcrest and Byron stations. This 23-mile corridor includes six transit stations in Pittsburg, Antioch, Oakley, Brentwood and Byron (in unincorporated Contra Costa County). The recommended rail technology involves trains using light-weight, self-propelled rail cars known as Diesel Multiple Units (DMUs). Passengers on the DMUs would tranfer to Bart at the existing Pittsburg/Bay Point BART Station, ideally with a short walk across or along the BART platform. A train storage yard and maintenance facility are part of the proposed facilities. In addition, the proposed project would include new grade separations in Antioch at Somersville Road, A Street and Hillcrest Avenue. Local bus service offered by Tri Delta Transit District would be modified to eliminate routes that duplicate eBART service, synchronize headways with eBART schedules, and redefine routes to feed eBART stations.
