Upcoming: Capitol Expressway Light Rail Project
This project will extend light rail to the Eastridge Transit Center with elevated structures at Capitol Avenue, Story Road, and Tully Road. The Eastridge extension will include Light Rail stations at Story Road and the Eastridge Transit Center. In June 2016, I alongside my colleagues on the VTA Board approved funding to complete design, acquire right of way and relocate utilities. VTA is developing a financing plan for the project. The environmental studies are underway, and the construction should begin 2019 dependent on funding. Construction is dependent on Board of Directors approval of funding/financing plan.
