Alviso Wetland Railroad Adaptation Alternatives Study

ENVIRONMENT  RELIABILITY

Evaluates sea level rise adaptation options for railroad tracks between Newark and Santa Clara to improve resiliency of railroad infrastructure, enhance species and habitat restoration efforts, and ensure that such infrastructure can support future plans for increased passenger train service between Oakland and San Jose. The Study engaged a broad range of stakeholders between 2018 and 2020 and set up solid foundation for future adaptation efforts, which will require additional funding, technical analyses, and partnerships with various stakeholders. The final Study Report can be found here.

SAFETY  RELIABILITY  ENVIRONMENT

The Northern California megaregion, consisting of the 21 counties between Monterey, San Francisco, Sacramento and the northern San Joaquin Valley, is the 16th largest economy in the world. The Bay Area and much of the Sacramento and Central Valley regions increasingly operate as an interconnected megaregion, with commerce and commutes crossing county lines. The Capitol Corridor Joint Powers Authority (CCJPA) and Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) have partnered to advance the New Transbay Rail Crossing program, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that will create benefits for generations to come.
