Proposed Dos Rios
Light Rail Station

Dos Rios Station

RT and the Sacramento Housing and Redevelopment Agency (SHRA) are designing a new light rail station on North 12th Street between Sproule Avenue and Richards Boulevard in the Dos Rios neighborhood.

This project would be a catalyst for development in the area and improve connectivity to public transit. Using grant funds, preliminary design for light rail track layout is underway for this station and the environmental analyses are expected to be released to the public in late spring 2015. Future construction of the station will be dependent on identification of funding.


Dos Rios Station on the Blue Line


The proposed Dos Rios Station would be in the River District of downtown Sacramento. The proposed location is on the east side of North 12th Street between Sproule Avenue and Richards Boulevard between the Alkali Flat/La Valentina Station in downtown Sacramento and the Globe Station across the river.


Just like the new 7th & Richards/Township 9 light rail station is energizing development in the western part of the River District, the proposed Dos Rios Station would be a building block that helps revitalize the eastern section of the River District. SHRA is redeveloping the nearby Twin Rivers public housing area into a mix of housing types, commercial space, and retail space transforming the area into a more “downtown urban neighborhood” and providing more residential capacity. The proposed light rail station is a key part of the redevelopment for this neighborhood and will improve transit connectivity for everyone in the River District.


This project has been funded by a Sacramento Area Council of Government’s Community Design Grant (Federal Transit Administration's Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program) and contributions from SHRA.
