Escalator swing gate modifications at SF stations 2/8-5/31/2018
Update: Now starting Thursday, February 8
Starting Monday, February 5, we will be working on the escalators in San Francisco stations (Embarcadero, Montgomery, Powell Street, Civic Center, 16th Street/Mission, and 24th Street/Mission). The first escalator will be at Embarcadero Station. Each escalator we work on will be out of service 8 hours a day (from 6:00 am to 2:30 pm) while the work is being performed. The work should take approximately 2 to 4 days per escalator. Signs and safety barricades will be in place while the work is performed.
We are required by code to add a function to the security swing gates at the top of the escalators that will automatically shut off the escalator when the gates are closed.
You can check escalator status at http://www.bart.gov/stations/escalators.
We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your patience.
