San Diego Trolley to UCSD

Postby lpetrich » Thu Aug 28, 2014 8:58 am

The Mid-Coast Corridor Transit Project, also SANDAG: Mid-Coast Corridor Transit Project

It's gradually advancing in the planning process, and it may be close to starting construction.

This extension of the San Diego Trolley goes north from the Old Town station along I-5 / Morena Blvd. / the BNSF/Surfliner tracks to the University of California at San Diego, where it will have 6 stations. It will first continue north along I-5, then east along Voigt Dr., then east and south along Genessee Ave. The tracks will be at surface level from Old Town to the university, and they will be elevated in the university.

YOLO, what in particular might you want?

Go-ahead for San Diego Mid-Coast Corridor | International Railway Journal, Trolley link to La Jolla clears big hurdle | UTSanDiego.com
Its Final Environmental Impact Report has been approved, and it's now ready for applying for New Starts funding. Construction could start in late 2015 and by complete by 2019.

UC San Diego may name new trolley line | SanDiegoUnionTribune.com That's $30 million over 30 years for "UC San Diego Blue Line".
Besides rights to name the trolley, the station at Old Town will be called the “Old Town UC San Diego Health Campus South,” and the university will also get to name the two new trolley stations on its campus in La Jolla. The institution’s logo will appear on station signs, trolley maps, schedules, one-way tickets, and on major advertisements wrapped around trolley cars. It also gets to be the exclusive health care, research and education advertiser on the line.

Also,
Construction is expected to begin early next year, ... Rail service is expected to start four years after construction begins.

That's 2016 and 2020.
