BART To San Jose
U.S. transportation officials are recommending federal funding for the Bay Area Rapid Transit commuter train extension to San Jose.
But, the hard-hit construction industry could soon be seeing some better times, following the awarding of more than $1 billion in contracts for the BART to San Jose project.
BART trains could be rolling in San Jose as soon as 2016 after a huge hurdle was cleared Thursday in the form of more than $1 billion in grant money.
California may be broke, but that isn’t stopping the state from funneling more than $200 million into Bay Area transportation projects. This is especially good news for the BART-to-San Jose project.
One of the major targets of the budget compromise is federal funding for transportation projects, including two high-profile Bay Area projects.
