Document Description
FYI Final The Mid-Coast Corridor Transit Project would extend the San Diego Trolley Blue Line from the Santa Fe Depot in Downtown San Diego north to the Old Town Transit Center via the existing Trolley tracks. New tracks would then extend north for 11 miles to the University Towne Centre Transit Center in University City. Nine new stations (four at grade and five aerial) would be built at the following locations: Tecolote Road, Clairemont Drive, Balboa Avenue, Nobel Drive, Veterans Administration Medical Center, University of California, San Diego West Campus, University of California, San Diego East Campus, Executive Drive, and the University Towne Centre Transit Center. With this extension, the project would provide for continuous service on the Trolley Blue Line from the San Ysidro Transit Center at the U.S.-Mexico international border to University City. In addition to the 11 miles of new Trolley tracks and nine new stations, the project includes upgrades to existing facilities between the Santa Fe Depot and the Old Town Transit Center, and the acquisition of new Trolley vehicles for the extended project operation. The project alignment would be located primarily within existing Metropolitan Transit System, City of San Diego, or Caltrans right-of-way; along local streets; and within the Los Angeles-San Diego-San Luis Obispo Rail Corridor Agency and I-5 corridors.
