Construction on new canopy at Powell St. Station entrance starts 10/23 (New Date)

Concept of new canopy designImage is an artist concept of the new canopy and location.

On Monday, October 23, 2017 (.revised date), our contractor will build a barricade around the entrance to Powell Street Station located at Ellis & Market streets on the north side. The entrance will be closed while a new protective canopy is built. The canopy will include a digital display to show train arrival times, new security grille, new LED lighting, security cameras, and other improvements. The canopy will mean that our escalator at this entrance will be protected from the elements to help limit breakdowns.

While this entrance is closed, you will need to use one of the other existing entrances to the station. We expect the project to take approximately 5 months to complete.

We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your patience.
