Final environmental report for proposed extension to Livermore now available

BART has completed the Final Program Environmental Impact Report (FPEIR) for an extension between the Dublin/Pleasanton Station and the City of Livermore. The FPEIR consists of a "Response to Comments" (Volume 2) which publishes BART's replies to public comments about the project together with the previously issued Draft Program Environmental Impact Report (Volume 1). Both volumes of the FPEIR are now available.

You can download a copy of the FPEIR from the BART to Livermore website.  To have a CD-ROM of the Response to Comments mailed to you, email info@barttolivermore.org or call (888) 441-0434. You can also visit selected local libraries in Livermore, Dublin, and Pleasanton to read a copy.
