It will be demolished to make way for a second track across Central Expressway and into downtown Mountain View, eliminating a bottleneck for the 902 line, allowing better service as ridership increases, according to VTA officials.
The "Mountain View Double Track" project is estimated to cost $63 million, and work may begin this summer to add track between the downtown station and Highway 85.

Evelyn station users will be encouraged to use the Whisman station or the downtown Mountain View station instead.
