Multi-Agency public meeting
Submitted By VTA
Recognizing that upcoming work activities planned by several public agencies will occur simultaneously in the Warm Springs/South Fremont area, VTA BART Silicon Valley, Hetch Hetchy Regional Water System, Caltrans, BART and the City of Fremont have partnered to collaboratively host a community meeting to provide project construction updates.
Members of the public are invited to attend the multi-agency public meeting and receive an overview presentation of agency projects. Topics will include construction activities, traffic constraints, detours and project schedules. Following the presentation, participants will have the opportunity to visit display stations and meet with project staff from the four public agencies.
Attendees will learn detailed information about:
* BART Silicon Valley's Mission Warren Area Improvements Project, specifically the 12-month Warren Avenue road closure between Kato Road and Mission Falls Court, scheduled to begin Monday, June 17, 2013. The closure will allow construction crews to trench Warren Avenue under the future BART system and build bridges for both BART and the Union Pacific Railroad.
* Hetch Hetchy Regional Water System's Bay Division Pipeline Numbers 3&4 Seismic Upgrade Project which is a major upgrade of two regional water delivery pipelines that cross the Hayward Fault and ongoing work activities scheduled through the end of 2014.
* BART Warm Springs Construction Work Planned for South Grimmer Boulevard, including lane closures on South Grimmer Boulevard between Warm Springs Boulevard and Lopes Court to accommodate BART track way overpass.
* Caltrans will provide an overview on ramp metering projects such as the 680 Ramp Metering from 101 Interchange to Scott Creek Road, which consists of installing 22 ramp metering elements, 20 ramp widening and construction of 3 retaining walls; with ongoing construction scheduled through Spring 2014. Caltrans will also provide information on future projects in the area.
The presentation will focus on detour routes planned by the four agencies. Thursday's multi-agency coordination meeting marks the first of many planned collaborations to outreach to the community in order to inform the public about ongoing construction activities.
