This station is the southern end of the BART Warm Springs BART extension, a project to add 5.4 miles (8.7 km) of new tracks from the existing Fremont BART station, including a subway under man-made Lake Elizabeth and Fremont Central Park. After the subway portion, the line will parallel the existing at-grade right-of-way belonging to Union Pacific. Major crossings of both Union Pacific and BART, such as Paseo Padre Parkway and Washington Boulevard, will be grade-separated in collaboration with the City of Fremont.
Construction of the underground portions of the train line was completed in late 2012.
In 2011 the city of Fremont approved $US 90,000 to hire a lobbyist to prevent Union Pacific from opening a new rail yard on property it bought adjacent to the station. If this happened it is believed that transit oriented development would not be feasible.
