BART schedules hearing on extending service to Livermore

4.8 mile route would add tracks along I-580 to new station at Isabel

BART officials will hold a public hearing at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 19, on its plan to extend train service to Livermore.

The project, which is being developed in partnership with the city of Livermore, would extend BART 4.8 miles from the East Dublin/Pleasanton station along I-580 to a new station in the vicinity of the Isabel Avenue/I-580 Interchange.

The new station would accept bus to BART transfers and would include express bus services linking inter-regional rail service, both Livermore and Sandia laboratories, major residential and business districts in Livermore and from proposed offsite parking lots.

BART is soliciting comments on the scope of the proposed Draft Environmental Impact Report needed before the extension project can begin. At the Sept. 19 hearing, the public will be invited to talk about alternatives, impacts and mitigation measures that should be studied as part of the EIR process.

The meeting will be held in the Robert Livermore Community Center, 4444 East Ave., Livermore.
