Pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), the Capitol Corridor Joint Powers Authority (CCJPA), has prepared a Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Report (SEIR) for the Sacramento to Roseville Third Main Track (Project or SR3T Project). The Final EIR for the SR3T Project was certified on Nov. 18, 2015. Subsequent to that original CEQA certification, CCJPA is seeking to accommodate changes in project design associated with the SR3T Project. The SR3T Project SEIR covers two project components:
- Railroad Bridge Crossings: Supplemental analysis for railroad bridge crossings at two locations across Business I-80 to accommodate changes in project design. This includes the replacement and realignment to the existing Elvas Underpass (Caltrans Bridge 24-0031) and the existing B Street Underpass (Caltrans Bridge 24-0023).
- Passenger Train Layover Facility: The original SR3T EIR contemplated a passenger train layover facility adjacent to Old Town Roseville, located along the west leg of the Union Pacific (UP) wye track connecting the UP Roseville Subdivision with the UP Valley Subdivision. Subsequent to certification of the Final EIR for the SR3T Project, a revised location of the proposed passenger train layover facility was identified adjacent to the UP Roseville Subdivision, east of the originally proposed location, with the majority of the revised layover facility located between Tiger Way and Galleria Boulevard.
The public review and comment period for the Draft SEIR is Oct. 27, 2023, to Dec. 11, 2023.
