The San Mateo County Transportation Authority (SMCTA), in partnership with Alameda County Transportation Improvement Authority (ACTIA) and Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA), is undertaking the Dumbarton Rail Corridor project in San Francisco, California, the US.
The project involves the repairing and upgrading of the damaged rail bridges and tracks spanning the bay between Redwood City and Newark; improving existing tracks and signal controls; constructing three new passenger rail stations in Menlo Park/East Palo Alto, Newark, Union City, and a new layover facility in the East Bay; and upgrading the Fremont Centerville station.
The project will extend rail corridor service for approximately 33km between Redwood City and Union City. The project will be implemented by reconstructing an existing rail bridge next to the Dumbarton Bridge (State Route 84) and using existing rail right-of-way leading to and from the reconstructed bridge.
A Draft Environmental Impact Report for the proposed project was prepared in 2010. But it was not published as the project has undergone change and a new set of alternatives are proposed.
The project will be funded by various agencies including Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC), San Mateo County Transportation Authority (SMCTA), Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA), Alameda County Transportation Improvement Authority (ACTIA) and Capitol Corridor Joint Powers Authority (CCJPA).
In October 2013, the project was put on hold due to lack of funds.
In March 2016, the project was revived after Facebook has agreed to fund US$1 million for the study activities.
A Facebook-SamTrans collaboration is conduction a environmental study on transportation improvements.
Study activities are underway and will continue for 15 months. Cost estimates and engineering analysis are expected to be released in August 2017.
In December 2017, study recommendations released.
The Dumbarton Rail Corridor project involves the extension of commuter rail service across the southern portion of the San Francisco Bay between the Peninsula and the East Bay in California, the US.
The US$700 million project includes the following:
