Road closure notice

Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) has announced that Warren Avenue between Kato Road (west) and Warm Springs Boulevard (east) will be closed on weekends during January. Closures begin Friday at 10 p.m. and end Monday at 5 a.m. Closure schedule is as follows:

1. Friday, January 4 - Monday, January 7
2. Friday, January 11 - Monday, January 14
3. Friday, January 18 - Monday, January 21
4. Friday, January 25 - Monday, January 28

This project is a partnership between VTA, the Alameda County Transportation Commission (ACTC), City of Fremont, Federal Highway Administration and Caltrans to ease congestion, enhance safety and improve local traffic circulation. Mission Boulevard will be widened from 880 to Warm Springs and include newly construction ramps to and from Kato Road. A new Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) bridge and BART bridge will be constructed over Mission Boulevard. Warren Avenue will be lowered underneath the existing railroad corridor. A series of three new bridges (UPRR, BART, maintenance) will be constructed over a fully depressed grade-separated Warren Avenue.

The Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) Silicon Valley Project is a 16-mile extension of the existing BART system to San Jose, Milpitas and Santa Clara, which will be delivered through a phased approach. The first phase, the Berryessa Extension, is a 10-mile, two-station extension, beginning in Fremont south of the future Warm Springs/South Fremont BART Station and proceeding in the former Union Pacific Railroad right-of-way through Milpitas, the location of the first station, and then to the Berryessa area of San Jose, at the second station. VTA continues project development activities for the second six-mile phase of the project that includes a 5.1-mile long subway tunnel through downtown San Jose, ending at grade in Santa Clara near the Caltrain station. Construction on the second phase of the project will commence as additional funding is secured.
