On Monday, January 11, 2021, the BART-operated garage at Walnut Creek Station will be partially closed for approximately six weeks to allow our contractor to retrofit and upgrade the lighting. The garage will be closed in phases to allow continued parking. The first floor will remain open during Phase 1 and floors 2-4 will be closed while work is completed on those floors and then the first floor will be closed in Phase 2 (with the exception of the ADA parking spaces), and parking will open on floors 2-4. Please see the maps below of the closures.
 
This is part of a larger lighting improvement project that will upgrade and improve the lighting in 14 of our station garages throughout the system. This program will replace over 10,500 fixtures and add new lighting controls that will make the lighting in the garages more energy efficient, brighter, and in keeping with our sustainability goals. 
 
Walnut Creek Station is the second garage in the project. Hayward garage was the first garage completed January of 2021. The rest of the garages will follow until the project is completed in October of 2021. We will provide updates as necessary during the project. 

Hayward garage were illuminated using sodium vapor lights and replaced to new LED lights.

We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience.
