Alviso Wetland Railroad Adaptation Alternatives Study
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.
