Light rail station reopening and Jazz Festival

Tomorrow, the Almaden light rail shuttle will resume service as Almaden, Oakridge and Ohlone/Chynoweth stations reopen. A week later on August 16, Blossom Hill and Cottle stations will be closed for platform retrofit. Bus bridge will be provided at both stations to connect with light rail at other stations. At Blossom Hill station, the entrance at Velasco Drive will be closed.

Once the construction completes at Blossom Hill and Cottle, Snell will be the last station to be closed for retrofit. Santa Teresa station will remain open through the construction period.

Also this weekend, due to the San Jose Jazz Festival. All buses that operate on San Fernando Street west of 1st in Downtown San Jose will be rerouted to San Carlos Street. Routes 22 and 23 that normally operate on San Fernando during late Friday and Saturday nights will remain on Santa Clara Street.
