This light rail extension project, located in San Jose, CA, runs along the Capital Expressway for 3.1 miles, from the Alum Rock Station (at the end of the Capitol Light Rail extension) to the future Neiman Boulevard Station. The Capital Expressway light rail extension operates primarily within the median of Capitol Expressway as part of a multi-modal transportation corridor that improves local transit, pedestrian, and bicycle access. This allows for faster and more effective service with convenient connections to other transit services while providing access to neighborhoods, jobs, and retails.
The extension includes four new stations located near Story Road, Ocala Cunningham Avenue, Eastridge Transit Center, and Nieman Boulevard. Other project elements include an expanded park & ride facility at Eastridge Transit Center, grade separations at Capitol Avenue, Story Road, Tully and Quimby Roads, urban design elements such as landscaping and lighting to enhance the corridor and facilitate bicycle and pedestrian access.
Scope of Services
