Temporary relocation of ADA parking at Coliseum Station 1/14


Temporary relocation of ADA parking at Coliseum Station 1/14

As part of BART’s systemwide Earthquake Safety Program, seismic retrofit work at the Coliseum Station continues and expands to the northside of the Station (outside the Concourse). This construction, consists of seismic retrofit work performed on each footing and pier cap (a beam connecting two columns) that serves to support the BART trackway under the alignment. Beginning as early as Monday, January 14, 2019--weather permitting--existing ADA parking (located off San Leandro Street) will be temporarily relocated north of its current location (closer to 69th Street) please see the map below. This temporary closure and relocation will allow the contractor to perform seismic retrofit construction on nearby structures at Coliseum Station. Please watch for directional signs and allow for additional travel time. Coliseum Station will REMAIN OPEN for BART riders during construction.

Seismic retrofit construction activity on the south side of Coliseum Station continues and the escalator located on the south-end of the Concourse to/from the Platform will remain temporarily closed. 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 (open) 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. Similar earthquake safety retrofit construction is underway at Fruitvale Station.

We appreciate your patience and cooperation during this work. As always, safety is BART’s top priority. 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. Our aim is to complete seismic retrofit work as quickly as possible, while maintaining BART service.
