East County
PROJECT BUDGET $513 Million
PROJECT SPONSOR
CCTA & BART
LOCATION:

Pittsburg/Bay Point BART Station to Hillcrest Avenue within the median of SR 4.

STATUS:
Under Construction
Commute

It will also position eastern Contra Costa County to better absorb projected increases in households and jobs.
