Peninsula Corridor Electrification Project Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) Released

The Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board (Caltrain) has released the Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) for Caltrain's Peninsula Corridor Electrification Project (PCEP) pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The project would electrify the Peninsula Corridor from the Caltrain San Francisco 4th and King Station to approximately 2 miles south of the Tamien Caltrain Station, convert diesel-hauled to Electric Multiple Unit trains, and increase service up to six Caltrain trains per peak hour per direction by 2019.

Property owners, residents, public agencies, and all interested parties are invited to review and provide comments on the information contained in the DEIR. Comments on the DEIR will be accepted during the 60-day comment period from February 28 to April 29, 2014.
