Project covers corridor from Merced and Stockton to San Jose; wide diversity of urban and rural land uses.
Note: Extended Review
ACEforward is a phased improvement plan proposed by SJRRC to increase service reliability and frequency, enhance passenger facilities, and reduce travel times along the existing ACE service corridor from San Jose to Stockton and to extend ACE service to Manteca, Modesto, Ceres, Turlock and Merced. This plan would provide the foundation of SJRRC's near-term and longer-term vision of intercity and commuter passenger rail services.
The ACEforward plan contains both near-term and longer-term improvements that are analyzed in this EIR. Near-term improvements are analyzed at a project level of detail based on preliminary engineering analysis in this EIR, and no further environmental analysis under CEQA is anticipated. Longer-term improvements are analyzed at a programmatic, more conceptual level of detail in this EIR b/c only conceptual engineering has been completed at this time Subsequent environmental documentation will be required for the longer-term improvements once further engineering and project definition is completed.
