Hazardous material abatement at Downtown Berkeley Station starts 9/17


Hazardous material abatement at Downtown Berkeley Station starts 9/17

Starting on Monday, September 17, we will begin preparing for the installation of new signs at Downtown Berkeley Station (Concourse level). We will remove hazards such as lead paint and asbestos that have been identified during earlier sampling. These materials did not present a hazard when undisturbed, but because of the sign installation work, they now need to be removed. The work will occur between 9pm and 4am on weekdays). The work will take 1-2 weeks to complete.

We will take all proper precautions to protect customers and employees during the abatement. The contractors doing the work are required to wear various safety equipment such as special suits, masks, respirators, etc. This is part of regulations and is done for the safety of the workers. The areas where the abatement work is being done will be blocked off with protective drapes, etc. as needed.

We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your patience.
