BART Phase II Priorities and Preferred Alternatives.


Approve the following City of San José priorities and locally preferred alternatives for the BART Phase II project, as guidance to the City’s VTA Board members in determining the final project description, completion of environmental clearance, and initiation of final design:

(a)                     Support the West Station Option for the Downtown Station location.

(b)                     Support the North Station Option for the Diridon San José Central Station location.

(c)                     Support continued efforts by VTA, with the collaboration and support of BART, to determine a way to enable the Single Bore Tunnel method to be used in construction of the subway tunnel under Downtown San Jose to partially mitigate the significant construction impacts associated with Twin Bore, cut and cover construction methods.

(d)                     Emphasize the need for VTA to continue detailed levels of coordination of the City of San José on station access planning, integration with surrounding urban areas, and final station design to ensure that the stations and station areas appropriately represent San José.

(e)                     Establish as a priority the effective integration of the BART project, station location and portal entrances into Diridon San Jose Central Station planning and area development.

(f)                     Emphasize the importance for VTA to develop an extensive Construction Outreach and Management Program.
