Meeting set to discuss traffic relief along Dumbarton corridor
Submitted By the City of Union City
If you are a Dumbarton Corridor commuter, come learn about future rail options that could take you out of your car and decrease your commute time.
SamTrans will host a public meeting at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 13 at the Mark Green Sports Center in Union City to present a study that identifies strategies for relieving traffic congestion along the Dumbarton corridor. After the presentation, members of the public will have an opportunity to meet with SamTrans staff in small group discussions.
One strategy identified in the study is the restoration of the Dumbarton Rail Bridge, which can then provide train service between Redwood City and Union City. The new Dumbarton Rail service could interface with Caltrain, ACE, Capitol Corridor, and BART at the Union City BART station. This strategy would be possible with construction of track improvements nearby -- work that can be done by coordination among local transportation agencies.
Another strategy recommended by SamTrans are improvements to Highway 84 that would allow for increased bus service.
The solutions identified in this report can address traffic congestion and create new transit alternatives along the Dumbarton Corridor between Alameda County and San Mateo and Santa Clara counties. Union City commuters who rely on this corridor are encouraged to come to the meeting and learn about transit and rail opportunities that support the Union City Station District.
