Stairs/escalator closed for improvement at 19th St. Station


Stairs/escalator closed for improvement at 19th St. Station

As part of our modernization project at 19th Street Oakland Station, we closed the south stairwell that goes between the concourse and both platforms in late September. The stairs are closed so we can make improvements to the handrails, LED lighting, stair steps and abrasive nosing, brick tiles and install architectural glass guardrails.

The northwest entrance to the station (stairs and escalator) at the corner of 20th Street and Broadway has been closed since the week of June 1, 2021 and remains closed (see map). The 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 staircase at the center of the station was closed in mid-May of 2021 and reopened in early October 2021 following the completion of improvements.

Temporary wayfinding signs are being installed to assist customers.

We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your patience.
