Construction of the station was uncertain at the time of eBART's approval due to lack of available funds.
Funding for the station was secured in early 2015 and was estimated at $11.9 million (equivalent to $13 million in 2018). Construction commenced on July 27, 2015, and was opened with the rest of the line on May 26, 2018.
