Earthquake upgrade construction to start inside West Oakland Station


Earthquake upgrade construction to start inside West Oakland Station

Dear Customers:

Starting early July 2010, construction crews will start earthquake strengthening work inside the West Oakland Station. Crews will construct scaffolding and enclosures around work areas and at times will need to temporarily change pedestrian access inside the station. This means it may take longer to make your way through the station and around the work areas. In addition, while we’re doing this work you can expect temporary construction-related noise and dust. Please proceed around construction areas with caution and watch for signs with safety information and other notices. We appreciate your patience and cooperation during this work.
