Earthquake Safety construction inside Coliseum Station begins 10/22


Earthquake Safety construction inside Coliseum Station begins 10/22

As part of BART’s systemwide Earthquake Safety Program, seismic retrofit work at the Coliseum Station continues. Work inside the station will begin the week of October 22, 2018 with construction work  area enclosure going up as early as Thursday, October 18, 2018. Coliseum Station Concourse construction work will begin with STAGE ONE (1) south side of the concourse. The south escalator will be temporarily closed for approximately 3 months. This is work on each footing and pier cap (a beam connecting two columns), which supports the BART trackway under the alignment. Please plan for additional time to travel inside the station from the concourse to the platform. Parking machines, stairs, elevators, restrooms, and all other escalators will remain accessible during construction. Construction crews will fence in work areas, and you will see construction equipment accessing the site such as scissor lifts, drill rigs, concrete pump/hose and trucks, and scaffolding. During this construction, ADA/pedestrian access/pathway will be slightly detoured with directional signage. Please proceed around construction areas with caution and watch for signs with safety information and other notices. Please be advised that changes/modifications maybe required at any time; the construction team will make every effort to minimize inconveniences.
