About this event

The Presentation:

Bill O’Hair will present on the current status of the Valley Link Rail Project. The Tri-Valley – San Joaquin Valley Regional Rail Authority (TVSJVRRA) issued the Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR) under the CEQA process for the Valley Link Rail Project in April 2021, for a 42-mile, 7 station commuter rail system from BART Dublin/Pleasanton Station in Alameda County to North Lathrop in San Joaquin County based on its 15% design. The FEIR preferred alternative identified stations at Dublin/Pleasanton, Isabel, Southfront, Mountain House, Downtown Tracy, River Islands and North Lathrop on the above alignment. The FEIR did not select a rail vehicle, but identified several alternatives for subsequent review. In anticipation of seeking federal funding, the Valley Link Rail Project will be advancing the railroad design to 30% for an Initial Operating Segment (IOS) under the NEPA/ Supplemental CEQA process and will be looking at an alternative alignment to a Mountain House I-205 Station and the selection of a sustainable vehicle. As part of the sustainability goals of the TVSJVRRA Board of Directors, the project will be considering a hydrogen powered rail vehicle and also the construction and operation of hydrogen production facility at the project’s Tracy Operations and Maintenance Facility site to produce green hydrogen from renewable resources to power the rail vehicles as part of the NEPA process for the IOS. The current project schedule is for completion of the NEPA process for the IOS in 2025, final design completion is 2025, and construction from 2025 to 2027.
