Downtown Berkeley Plaza Improvements Approved - April 14, 2016
The plaza above Downtown Berkeley Station will have a dramatic new look designed to improve both safety and walkability by Fall 2017, thanks to a project approved by the BART Board of Directors.
The Board voted to move ahead, in partnership with the City of Berkeley, with a project that includes a new main entrance enclosure, new furnishings, landscaping, paving, bus shelters and LED lighting.
In keeping with a new statewide focus on stormwater management, all on-site stormwater will be treated through bio-retention planters and landscaping.
The project will also bring changes within the station with improved signage throughout the station and plaza.
The $7.6M project authorized today is expected to begin June 2016, and be completed by September 2017.
