Watch the progress of the Berryessa and Milpitas BART stations – East Bay TimesOn Dec. 9, BART updated the station project’s website to announce “Passenger service to the Warm Springs/South Fremont Station is expected to begin Winter 2017.”
“Any estimate is anybody’s best guess at any given time, and as issues arise, we have to reevaluate where we’re at. We weren’t expecting the 45-year-old cables that we had to be giving us problems. During testing, unexpected things show up, and it’s our job to fix them and then retest again until those issues don’t arise.”
“We ended up having to replace our power transmission infrastructure down there on the south part of the Fremont line, and that added time and expense,” he said.
As for the new opening date, Huckaby said he couldn’t be more specific than sometime between the new year and March 20.
