Stairs closed for improvement at 19th Street Station


Stairs closed for improvement at 19th Street Station


As part of our modernization project at 19th Street Oakland Station, we will close the staircase at the center of the station near 19th Street on Saturday, 4/17/2021. The stairs will be closed for approximately 6 months while we make improvements to the handrails, LED lighting, stair steps & abrasive nosing, brick tiles and install architectural glass guardrails. The northwest entrance to the station at the corner of 20th Street and Broadway also closed beginning the week of June 1, 2021. The stairs/escalator entrance is closed so crews can install the infrastructure for a new station agent booth, relocate fare gates, install a new elevator and make repairs to terrazzo tiles. The northwest entrance is expected to reopen Winter 2021/2022.

The center stairs will be closed at all 3 levels (concourse, upper platform, lower platform) simultaneously (see the map for the location of the stairs). Escalators are located adjacent to the closed stairs. Stairs serving all levels of the station will remain open at the North end and South end of the station. Temporary wayfinding signs are being installed to assist customers.

We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your patience.
