LIVERMORE (KCBS) – BART plans to prepare a draft environmental impact report on a possible extension to Livermore.

The proposed 4.8 mile extension would stretch from Dublin to Pleasanton within the I-580 median to the Isabel Ave. interchange in Livermore.Last November, Alameda County voters failed, by a small margin, to pass Measure B, which would fund the project. Some individuals appealed to the BART Board of Directors, at Thursday’s Board meeting, to press forward with the project nonetheless.

“Having BART extended into Livermore would provide another transportation option for our current workforce and enhance our ability to recruit new employees from out of the area, said Scott Wilson, who works at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. “We hope you’ll make it a high priority.”

It was not immediately clear when the EIR would be complete.
