The Fairfield-Vacaville Train Station project wins prestigious award

The Fairfield-Vacaville Train Station was selected as the winning project for “Outstanding Transportation Project” of the year! American Society of Civil Engineers recognized the project at the annual section meeting on September 6 in the Historic Green Room at the San Francisco War Memorial and Performing Arts Center.

The new Fairfield-Vacaville Train Station is one of the largest projects in the City of Fairfield’s history. It is a key component of connectivity, addresses local safety issues, and is a significant element in a regional strategy to relieve I-80 congestion. It is the focal point of transit-oriented development planned for northeast Fairfield over the next 20 years and will serve as the catalyst for transit-oriented communities, promoting pedestrian-oriented and multi-modal mixed-use communities with multiple, alternative transportation options.

The station is a partnership project located in the heart of the San Francisco-Sacramento Megaregion that provides vital alternative transportation modes to Solano County residents as well as those commuting into the County. Located between the cities of Fairfield and Vacaville, near Travis Air Force Base, the station provides more than 200,000 residents convenient access to the Capitol Corridor passenger rail service and the entire Megaregion.
