Tri-Valley San Joaquin Valley Regional Rail Authority
Valley Link Rail Project
NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Present Land Use
As shown in the Project Location Map, the Proposed Project would establish a new passenger rail service along a 26-mile corridor between the existing Dublin/Pleasanton BART Station in Alameda County and the proposed Mountain House Community Station with all-day bi-directional service at frequent intervals throughout the day using zero-emission multiple-unit vehicles. The alignment would be constructed within a combination of an existing freeway median, an existing transportation corridor owned by Alameda County, and new right-of-way (currently characterized by undeveloped grasslands) to be acquired for the Project. The Proposed Project includes four new stations as well as an Operations and Maintenance Facility (OMF) and an Operations Support Site in areas at the east end of the alignment.
The proposed changes to the 2021 CEQA Certified Project include relocation of the Dublin/Pleasanton Station platform to the south side of I-580, track realignment in the Altamont Pass, and a new Mountain House Community Station and OMF. The Mountain House Community Station would be constructed north of I-205 on a site west of Mountain House Parkway near the
I-205/Mountain House Parkway interchange. The new OMF would be constructed on a site east of Mountain House Parkway and north of I-205.
