West Oakland elevators to close temporarily for earthquake safety work
Dear Customer: As part of our systemwide Earthquake Safety Program, work is in progress to strengthen West Oakland Station against earthquakes. We will need to close both elevators temporarily. Westbound, platform #1, and Eastbound, platform #2 elevators at West Oakland Station will be temporarily out of service for electrical work.
Both elevators will be shut down the weekend of September 10, 11, and 12, from 9:30 pm Friday night until 4:30 am Monday morning. During this time, Lake Merritt or Oakland City Center/12th Street Stations can be used to access BART. Contact BART Customer Services (510) 465-BART if you have any questions. In October 2010, the elevators will be closed down for 3 months each, one at a time. If you require an accommodation due to this longer closure, please contact Micaela Mazzini at (510) 464-6447. We need information from you to help with our planning. Please watch for notices with the actual closure dates.
