Learn about the big plans VTA has for a parking structure between CA-87 and Lelong. There is a public outreach meeting to inform those living nearby what impacts they can expect.

VTA Public Meeting
Tuesday 18 November 2014
5:30pm to 7:30pm
San Jose Elks Lodge, No. 522
444 West Alma Avenue, San Jose, 95110
OFFICIAL SUMMARY FROM THE CITY OF SAN JOSE:
"The Project would consist of a four- or five-level parking structure with all levels above-grade. The parking structure would provide up to 900 parking spaces. Electric vehicle charging stations would be provided. The location of the parking structure would require the existing bus transit loop to be relocated to the south side of the proposed structure. A passenger drop off/pick up location would be located either in the bus transit loop area or in a turnout along Lelong Street. Bioinfiltration facilities to capture storm water runoff would be located on the west side of the parking structure along Lelong Street and in the middle of the bus transit loop. Replacement landscaping would include California native and/or drought-tolerant plants. The Project also proposes a traffic signal at Lelong Street and the State Route 87 on/off ramps. Figure 2 in the IS/MND provides a conceptual site plan for the Project and an illustration of the internal parking structure circulation."
