Construction on the new Warm Springs BART West Access Bridge and Plaza is starting this summer. The project includes a pedestrian and bicycle bridge that will cross over the existing Union Pacific railroad tracks and connect the Warm Springs/South Fremont BART Station to a new public plaza west of the station.
The bridge will facilitate access from the BART station to the new residential and commercial development in the area and nearby major employers such as Tesla and Thermo Fisher. The plaza will provide a pleasant space for people to gather, meet, and play. It will include several features, such as seating areas, event space, public art, solar charging stations for mobile devices, and LED column lighting. Both the bridge and plaza are expected to be completed in early 2020. Construction is funded by Measure BB and the Alameda County Transportation Commission.
