FREMONT -- A small but important roadway in the Warm Springs district will close for a year beginning Monday, as construction crews continue work to bring BART to the South Bay, officials said.

Warren Avenue, between Kato Road and Mission Falls Court, will close so that crews can lower the roadway and construct three new bridges above it, officials said. One bridge will be built for BART, while one will be for Union Pacific Railroad trains and the third will be used for maintenance.

That section of Warren Avenue, about one-fifth of a mile, is between Interstate 880 and Warm Springs Boulevard.

The project is a partnership between the city of Fremont, Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority, Federal Highway Administration, Alameda County Transportation Commission and Caltrans.

The Warm Springs BART station in Fremont is expected to open in the fall of 2015. BART's goal is to have service in San Jose by 2018.
