Escalator closed for improvements at 19th Street Oakland Station

As part of our modernization project at the 19th Street Oakland Station, we will close the down escalator on the north side of the station (closest to the Station Agent booth at 20th St. and Broadway) from Monday, January 10, 2022. It will be closed for approximately two weeks.

During the closure, crews will work to replace the metal railing along the upper level platform with glass guardrails.

The escalator is the first of six at the 19th Street Oakland Station being closed for glass guardrail installation. One escalator will be shut down at a time for approximately two weeks each.

Other improvements being made at 19th Street Station as part of the modernization project include the installation of a new concourse, painting of the concourse ceiling, new platform and trackway lighting and new glass fare gate barriers.

Temporary wayfinding signs will be in place to assist customers.

We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your patience.
