After 5 months of closure, Milpitas' Montague VTA Light Rail Station has finally reopened. During the prolonged closure, crews made modification to the station structure to make way for a pedestrian bridge that will connect the future Milpitas BART Station to Montague Station.
The station's main stairways were reconstructed to make room for a future escalator and pedestrian overpass, which will cross Capitol Avenue to the future BART station.
Emergency exit stairways were also changed to better accommodate the anticipated increase in passengers who will transfer from VTA’s BART Berryessa Extension, scheduled to open in Fall 2017.
The new escalator and pedestrian bridge will be built in a later construction phase. With BART more than halfway complete with its Silicon Valley Berryessa Extension, it's exciting to see what will happen next!
