Capitol Corridor Service Expansion Program explained by David Kutrosky, Managing Director of the Capitol Corridor Joint Powers Authority (CCJPA). Federal High Speed Intercity Passenger Rail funds are sought for three projects to expand Capitol Corridor intercity train service that extends from Auburn to San Jose. The "Vision Plan" expands service incrementally and is outlined in a "program Environmental Assessment" (EA). Projects for FY 2010 include work on Donner Pass, Newark-Albrae siding and expansion of the Centerville train platform. Capacity enhancing projects will impact routing and train traffic including freight traffic. The Draft Program EA is now available for public review and comment; comments due to CCJPA by October 29, 2010.
