Train Box Extension

Figure 2-8: Previously Approved and Proposed Train Box

The 2004 FEIS/EIR-approved train box design has the eastern end of the underground train box terminating at Beale Street. The proposed Train Box Extension would extend the train box east one block to Main Street. The proposed extension is compatible with platform design specifications from the California High-Speed Rail Authority and creates the opportunity for a more direct route for the planned pedestrian connection to the Embarcadero BART/Muni Metro station on Market Street.
