Earthquake safety work begins at South Hayward Station


Earthquake safety work begins at South Hayward Station

As part of our systemwide Earthquake Safety Program, we will begin strengthening structures at the South Hayward Station to better withstand future earthquakes. Beginning late May, 2014, work areas will be fenced in and you may see large equipment accessing the site such as dump trucks, backhoes and lifts. Additionally, temporary closures of some fee parking spaces will be required.

Please see the .pdf of this bulletin for a map of the work area.

The work will take place mostly between 8pm and 4:30am and will consist of the construction of temporary enclosures, removal/reinstallation of existing windows and bracing, drill and bond anchors, welding and instillation of cables and pipes, touch-up painting as necessary, and protecting utilities and equipment.

During construction, pedestrian access in and around the station will change periodically. Please proceed around construction areas with caution and watch for signs with safety information and other notices. You can also expect temporary construction-related noise, dust, and traffic impacts. We will monitor noise and dust and work to minimize any inconveniences. We appreciate your patience and cooperation during this work. 
Similar work to strengthen San Leandro, Hayward and Fremont stations is currently underway and is expected to be complete by early 2015. Earthquake Safety Program construction will be underway at various locations throughout the BART system over the next five years, and is expected to be complete by the end of 2018. As always, safety is BART’s top priority. Our aim is to strengthen BART as quickly as possible, while maintaining BART service.
