The project is currently in the engineering and environmental review phase. SANDAG completed the required environmental study for the FRA under the guidance of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) in late 2014. SANDAG estimates project completion by the year 2020 to meet future demand for increased passenger and freight rail services. 


The current budget for the project is $7 million and is comprised of TransNet funding and FRA Passenger Rail Investment and Improvement Act (PRIIA) grant funds. The preliminary estimate for the design and construction of the project is $56 million.
