Antioch Station will get more parking and bike/pedestrian improvements

The BART Board has approved construction of about 850 additional parking spaces at the Antioch Station, which already has more than 1,000 spaces.

The Board authorized the General Manager to award a contract to build the additional parking and to make improvements to the existing station area. Those improvements include better bicycle and pedestrian access by relocating the on-street bike lane within Slatten Ranch Road to an off-street multi-use path.

The existing parking lot will also be improved to facilitate smoother traffic flow through the station area by relocating the drop-off area and widening the bus lane. 

The $9.9 million contract will be awarded to O.C. Jones & Sons, Inc. of Berkeley. Work is anticipated to begin next March with a goal of completing the project in early 2021.
