POITRA modelers constructed an accurate 3D model of the viaduct and elevated station sidings, passenger platforms, canopies catenary system, and various architectual elements and station amenities. Glass elevator towers, access stairs, kiosks and planters were addapted from the Capitol Expressway Story Road Station design. The aerial station included large straddle bents which make room for the bus opperations below.
A 3D model was the perfect way to illustrate a complex compact facility like this one.”

The transit center model was set onto a 3D ground model that included proposed Capitol Expressway with all curbs, medians, walks and landscaping. The site model also included bus transfer bays at ground level.
The transit center footprint displaced some of the mall parking and made rerouting of the mall perimeter road necessary. To adequately illustrate these features POITRA modeled the entire mall parking lot with outbuildings, pavement markings and landscaping.
The model was topped off with POITRA VTA LRT vehicle models, buses, trucks, automobiles and station patrons.
Numerous views from above and below the center were selected and rendered for use in meetings with VTA, Eastridge Mall and other Capitol Expressway Light Rail Project stakeholders.
