Palm tree to be replaced at 16th St. Mission BART Station
On Monday, July 20, crews will start work at the northeast corner of the 16th Street/Mission Station (near Walgreens) to replace a dead palm tree. Our crews will install a temporary fence, prepare the soil for replanting and then plant the new tree. The planting will be done on Wednesday, July 22 during non-peak commute hours.
The station entrance on that side will be open at all times. The escalator and the elevator will remain in service during the project; however, there will be a period of about 30 minutes on the day the tree is planted when we will ask riders not to use the escalator while we upright the tree. Therefore, if you are unable to walk up or down stairs, you will need to use the elevator.
As the tree is planted, we will have staff on hand to help control foot traffic at that entrance of the station.
We apologize for any inconvenience and we thank you for your cooperation.
