Elevator flooring work Civic Center/UN Plaza 8/29-9/2 UPDATE

Updated: 9/2/2016  The work has been completed and both elevators have been restored to service.

Updated: 8/30/2016

New completion date: 9/9/2016 Due to unexpected levels of corrosion in the flooring requiring extensive repair work.

We will replace the flooring in our street-level and platform-level elevators at Civic Center/UN Plaza Station from Monday, August 29 to Friday, September 2, 2016. While the work is being done, there will be no elevator access to the station.

We will be upgrading the splash guards and flooring in the elevators to prevent liquid from flowing under the floor and to make cleaning the elevators easier.

While the elevators are out, you will need to access BART via a different station. Powell Street is the closest available station with elevators in service. 

To check if an elevator is in service before arriving at a station, please call 510-834-LIFT 
(510-834-5438) or 888-2-ELEVAT (888-235-3828), or sign up for elevator status alerts at www.BART.gov/stations/elevators If you arrive at a station and find that the elevator(s) are out of service, you may contact a Station Agent to arrange for a lift van to take you to a nearby station with a working elevator.

We apologize for the great inconvenience this will cause you and appreciate your patience while we perform this important maintenance work.
