BART Silicon Valley Extension
Kimley-Horn has provided a wide-range of services for the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority’s (VTA) BART Silicon Valley (BSV) project for more than 10 years.
The BART extension is being implemented in two phases. Phase I, the Berryessa Extension Project, is a 10-mile, $2.3 billion two-station project currently under construction and anticipated to open for revenue service in 2018. Kimley-Horn’s services have included on-call planning and programming for the BSV program office, and developing the planning concepts and preliminary engineering and final design for the transit station campuses in Milpitas and San Jose. Some of our planning and program management activities involve assisting with the EIS and supplemental EIR efforts; assisting the Real Estate group with right-of-way issues; supporting public, private, and city partner communication related to planning and engineering issues; and coordinating with private property owners and local governments to communicate project phasing, schedule, and potential cost-sharing agreements.
Kimley-Horn’s preliminary engineering and final design services for the transit station campuses in Milpitas and San Jose include the development of the site layouts, roadways, transit centers, pedestrian and bicycle flow, bus stop shelters, parking structures, surface parking lots, and advanced parking revenue management system.
Currently, Kimley-Horn is supporting VTA and the rest of the program management team in planning the $4.7 billion Phase II extension of BART service into downtown San Jose and Santa Clara.
