Temporary parking changes in south lot at Fruitvale Station


Temporary parking changes in south lot at Fruitvale Station

As part of our systemwide Earthquake Safety Program, we will begin strengthening structures in the south Fee parking lot at the Fruitvale Station to better withstand future earthquakes. The station will remain OPEN for BART riders during construction. Beginning in early January 2018, work areas will be fenced in and you may see large equipment accessing the site such as excavators, dump trucks, backhoes and lifts. Construction impact will include temporary loss of at least 6 parking stalls in the south Fee parking lot. Please see the diagram for the location of parking changes. Please note that vehicles not moved from areas that have been posted with “No Parking” signs will be subject to ticketing and/or towing.  Additionally, the work area will be fenced off with directional signage from the parking lot to the station.

Work hours are 7am – 7pm, Monday through Friday, with emergency work as necessary. During the project, you can expect temporary sidewalk and lane closures, as well as temporary reduction of parking spaces. During construction, pedestrian access in and around the station will change periodically.  Please proceed around construction areas with caution and watch for directional 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.

Related work to strengthen the concourse area of the Fruitvale Station is expected to begin in Spring/Summer 2018. Earthquake Safety Program construction at the remaining two stations is expected to be complete by the end of 2021. As always, safety is BART’s top priority. Our aim is to strengthen BART as quickly as possible, while maintaining BART service.
