Earthquake safety work at San Leandro Station


Earthquake safety work at San Leandro Station

As part of our systemwide Earthquake Safety Program, work is in progress to strengthen structures at the San Leandro Station to better withstand future earthquakes. Beginning the week of January 12, construction crews will temporarily close the station stairwells, one at a time, starting with the stairs on the east side of the station that access the platform for trains to San Francisco and Oakland and then moving to the opposite side when that work is done. The work will take place between the hours of 8 pm – 4 am. This work is expected to last for up to four weeks. Please watch for signs directing pedestrians to use escalators and elevators. 

You may see large equipment accessing the site such as dump trucks, backhoes and lifts. 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.
