Temporary elevator closures at Walnut Creek Station through Aug. 1


Temporary elevator closures at Walnut Creek Station through Aug. 1

As part of our systemwide Earthquake Safety Program, work is in progress to strengthen Walnut Creek Station against future earthquakes. Part of this work will require temporary closure of the elevators at the station. Only one elevator will be out of service at any time, leaving the other one accessible at all times for people who require an elevator to access the station.

Temporary Elevator Closures: The first phase of the elevator closures will take place from Monday, July 15 through Thursday, July 25, 2013. During this time, the elevator at Platform 1 (servicing Pittsburg/Bay Point bound trains) will be out of order.

If you are arriving at the Walnut Creek Station and require the use of this closed elevator, please proceed to the next BART station at Pleasant Hill/Contra Costa Centre Station and board a train to return back to the Walnut Creek Station to arrive on the opposite platform with a working elevator. In the event you need additional assistance due to a disability please see the Station Agent at the Walnut Creek Station. Provisional Paratransit services can be made available to accommodate persons with disabilities during these elevator closures for qualifying individuals.

After work around the Platform 1 elevator is complete, we will return it to full service and close the elevator at Platform 2 from Monday, July 29 through Thursday, August 8, 2013 (servicing all trains bound for San Francisco, Daly City and Millbrae).

Please watch for future notices and signs with safety information.
