Planning continues for the future Irvington BART Station, which will be located near the intersection of Washington Boulevard and Osgood Road approximately halfway between the Fremont BART Station and the Warm Springs/South Fremont BART Station.
City of Fremont and BART staff will hold a community meeting on Thursday, November 15, 2018, from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Fremont Main Library, Fukaya Room, located at 2400 Stevenson Blvd., to share the updated Station Site Plan. The updated Station Site Plan was developed based upon public input received at two previous community meetings and from two online surveys. At the community meeting, information will also be provided about the Station Area Plan, which is being prepared to address safe connections, active streets, parking management, and urban design near the Irvington BART Station.
Next year, the BART Board will consider approval of the updated environmental document covering the updated Station Site Plan since its approval as part of the Warm Springs BART extension project. In addition, next year, the Fremont Planning Commission and City Council will consider adoption of the Station Area Plan.
BART will begin designing the station in 2019. Subject to funding availability, construction is estimated to begin in 2022 and the station is projected to open in 2026. $120 million of voter-approved Measure BB funding is being provided by the Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC).
