We’ve posted my story on BART’s groundbreaking today in Central Park. It was long, and at the end, a lot of people you guys elected into office got to wear hard hats, pose for pictures and sign each other’s commemorative shovels.
So what does this mean for Fremont drivers and Central park users?
Well, There will be lane closures on Stevenson when the time comes to build the BART tunnel below Stevenson around Guardino. But we don’t know when that will be. The trench through Central Park will cut into a lot grassy open space, but it won’t disturb any park facilities like the baseball and softball fields.
And for all you joggers, a dam will be built into the east end of Lake Elizabeth during construction. The temporary trail will detour runners onto the dam, so the path will be a little less than its current two miles.
