A DRAFT ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT REPORT (EIR)
AND PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD
*Comment Period Close Date Extended from Oct. 10, 2019 to Nov. 4, 2019*
The City is extending the public comment period because the appendices included older versions of technical reports that were subsequently updated prior to publication of the Draft EIR. These Appendices are the Air Quality and Greenhouse Gas Emissions Analysis (Appendix E) and Noise and Vibration Analysis (Appendix J). These reports have been posted to the City's website for the project at http://www.sanjoseca.gov/index.aspx?NID=6078. These reports do not change the analysis and conclusions in the Draft EIR.
A Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) for the Charcot Avenue Extension is available for review.
Project Description: The City of San José proposes to extend Charcot Avenue from its eastern boundary at Paragon Drive, over Interstate 880 (I-880), to Oakland Road in the North San José Area Development Policy. The proposed two-lane extension is approximately 0.6-mile-long and includes an overcrossing of O'Toole Avenue and I-880 that would be approximately 720 feet in length. Sidewalks and Class IV bikeways are proposed along the extension. In addition, the proposed project includes intersection modifications at Charcot Avenue/Paragon Drive, Charcot Avenue/O'Toole Avenue, Charcot Avenue/Silk Wood Lane, and Charcot Avenue/Oakland Road. The project would require the installation of retaining walls and relocation of existing utilities as necessary, require additional right-of-way from several parcels and easement located along the proposed alignment.
