Capitol Expressway PGE Tower Relocation
VTA, Santa Clara County, California.
The proposed Capitol Expressway Corridor is part of Santa Clara County Valley Transit Authority's (VTA) Light Rail Transit (LRT) transportation network. It consists of a median running double tracked mainline that includes two long rail viaducts, an elevated LRT station, several grade level LRT stations, a bus and LRT multi-modal facility all with-in a re-designed major arterial.
POITRA was contracted to illustrate various aspects of the design for stakeholders that included area residents, a power company (PGE), a water district, and many area businesses.
The design of Capitol Expressway's intermodal facility near Eastridge Mall displaced several large PGE electric transmission towers. The proposed location of the new towers was in close proximity to Santa Clara Valley Water District's (SCVWD) Thompson Creek maintenance road. POITRA provided a photo-simulation at the location to communicate the design proposal, compare alternatives and help facilitate negotiations with PGE and the water district.
