If you wondered what was going on at the downtown train depot, here’s your answer.
Over the past month, Stacy and Witbeck/Herzog, the firm hired by Sonoma Marin Area Rail Transit (SMART), has been stockpiling bridge timbers, ties and material from the old rail line in preparation for work on the rail line, scheduled to begin at the end of this year.
On Monday and Tuesday, a train delivered seven and a half miles of rail, dropping off the rails along the train track.
Despite soaring steel prices, SMART officials say theft is not a concern because each rail is 1,600 feet long.
“There is no way anyone would be able to move it, even if they wanted to,” said Matt Stevens, a spokesman for SMART.
Are you excited the train is coming to town? Concerned about traffic delays?
