As part of our systemwide Earthquake Safety Program, construction crews are continuing to strengthen the elevated structures outside the San Leandro Station to better withstand future earthquakes. The current area of work is nearing completion and will be returning 38 daily fee parking spaces to service. The next phases of work will require the temporary closure of some other daily fee parking spaces starting the week of Monday, March 18, 2013 (download passenger bulletin (.pdf) for map). The work will take place from 7 am to 7 pm (with some night work) in two phases for approximately three months per phase.
The contractor will post “No Parking” signs in the designated areas prior to work beginning. Vehicles that are not moved from areas that have been marked with “No Parking” signs on the date posted will be subject to ticketing and/or towing. Please watch for signs with safety information and other notices.
We realize that this will cause you inconvenience and appreciate your patience during this important maintenance work.
