Entrance Closure at Downtown Berkeley Station February 8, 2017


Entrance Closure at Downtown Berkeley Station February 8, 2017

As part of the ongoing renovations to the Downtown Berkeley Station, we will close the entrance at the northwest corner of Shattuck and Allston Way on Wednesday, February 8, 2017. The entrance will remain closed until approximately May 31, 2017.

The renovations at this entrance will improve lighting, safety, wayfinding and enhance bike parking.

The project will also improve access to other modes of travel, redo station entrances, improve bus shelters, provide new plaza paving, lighting and landscaping. Once completed, the plaza will provide open space for events and activities. New wayfinding signs and electronic displays with real-time BART and bus arrival information, throughout the station and plaza, will be added.

The work, which should be completed by winter of 2017, requires that we temporarily close some of the station entrances. There will always be open entrances. Bus and shuttle stops and the taxi stand will need to be relocated during the work. There will be signs and maps to direct customers to the temporary locations of these services.

The Main entrance to the station will close after this plaza entrance reopens and will remain closed until late Fall of 2017.  Please see the map on the back of this notice for the entrance locations.

We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your patience.
