Notification #79 (UPDATED 4/19/2016):  Testing of BART Trains on New Warm Springs Extension Trackway Continues with Testing Expanded to Early Mornings

Estimated Start Date:    Mid-April 2016 (Start of expanded hours)

Summary of Activity:  The BART Warm Springs Extension (WSX) Project continues testing which began in 2015 and is expected to conclude this year.  Effective mid-April, required "blanket hour" or early morning testing will be needed.  Early morning testing will commence at approximately 1:30am Wednesday through Sunday mornings.

Testing is an important part of public transit line extensions and is done to ensure that a safe and verified system is in place before opening to the public.  

Impacts:

  • Periodic train horns;
  • Some noise and vibration from trains;
  • Trains traversing the new trackway (however the extension will not be open for service during testing);
  • Some nighttime and weekend testing, requiring lights; and
  • Possible "spot" construction work that may generate temporary noise, lights and dust.
