Service reduced to single track on three Saturdays in July for rail replacement work from Pleasant Hill to North Concord (next workday 7/24)

BART workers will be replacing 16,000 feet of rail in July as part of the on-going effort to rebuild the backbone of BART and replace aging equipment that has outlived its design life. In many cases the rail being replaced has been carrying dozens of BART trains every day for several decades.

This work will require that service between Pleasant Hill and North Concord be reduced to one track on the following Saturdays to ensure a safe work environment for the construction team:

*July 17
*July 24
*July 31

Riders in the area on workdays should anticipate delays of up to 20 minutes. Contra Costa County riders traveling westbound and looking to avoid the delay entirely should go directly to the Walnut Creek or Lafayette stations or even the West Oakland Station which provides more frequent train service into San Francisco.

This rail replacement work is made possible by Measure RR, which was approved by BART District voters in 2016 and provides $3.5 billion to rebuild the backbone of the system.
