Due to community feedback received when selecting the City's preferred alternative, City Council directed staff and the project team to develop a draft scope of work to potentially further evaluate a trench/tunnel and fully elevated alternatives. That draft scope of work was discussed by City Council on January 15, 2019, and subsequently at Rail Subcommittee meetings on April 22, July 16, and September 30. In addition, on May 21, 2019, City Council received a presentation from Professor Bennon of Stanford Global Project Center regarding financial feasibility of tunnels for rail.
On January 14, 2020, the City Council approved the revised scope of work and directed staff to consider additional visual impact studies at the direction of an ad hoc City Council subcommittee. More information will be posted here as the additional scope and cost is refined.
