The contractor working on the 16th Street NE Plaza will begin demolition of the wall enclosure around the Northeast entrance to the BART station. Due to rain delays over the New Years holiday weekend, the previously scheduled temporary path and demolition will now begin Monday, January 9 through Saturday, January 14, 2006 (weather permitting) from 7:00a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
The work will require the contractor to close one lane of traffic on 16th Street and close the sidewalk along 16th Street to pedestrians at the beginning of each workday. BART customers wishing to enter 16th Street Mission Station will be detoured safely through the plaza via a temporary pedestrian path running from the elevator along Mission Street to the 16th Street side of the plaza (please see the map on the back of this Passenger Bulletin).
At the end of each workday, the contractor will remove the temporary pedestrian path, open the sidewalk and the traffic lane on 16th Street and reconfigure the fence to its original location.
BART thanks you in advance for your patience during this renovation project. If you have questions about the temporary path or the project, please contact BART Community and Government Relations at 510.464.6172.
