BART Pedestrian and Bicycle Connectivity Project
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The project includes the removal of existing pavement striping and markings, slurry seal, and the installation of roadside signs and pavement striping and markings for Class IV bicycle lane along Railroad Avenue and California Avenue to East 17th Street. Additionally, a Class I path along the west side of Railroad Avenue from State Route 4 (SR-4) to the Delta De Anza Regional Trail will be installed. The construction of this path will include the installation of a 10-foot-wide concrete Class I trail that will have a minimum 2-foot-wide graded shoulders. The project will also include the installation of trail lighting, crosswalk treatments, modified driveways, a bus shelter, a security wall, wayfinding, and surface information signage, as well as landscaping and irrigation improvements. Along SR-4 East bound on-ramp, from the BART parking facility to Railroad Avenue, a Class I path would be installed along the north side of the adjacent properties within Caltrans Right of Way. The work proposed at this location is similar in nature to that proposed along Railroad Avenue from SR-4 to the Delta De Anza Regional Trail. The installation of new parking options and a Class I path along the south side of California Avenue from Railroad Avenue to Harbor Street is also being proposed. This work will require the installation of new curb and gutter, storm drainage systems, water treatment basins, retaining wall and other work similar to the other locations described above.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
15301(c) and General Rule 15061(b)(3)
Reasons for Exemption
The project qualifies for a Categorical Exemption under Class 1 (Existing Facilities) because it involves minor alteration of existing public facilities (streets, sidewalks, gutters, bicycle and pedestrian trails) with negligible or no expansion of use for the purposes of establishing pedestrian and bicycle facilities. The project is also exempt from CEQA because the activity would not have an impact on geology, cultural or water resources, aesthetics, land uses, mineral resources, water quality or public utilities.
