Power cable replacement will cause late night delays south of Lake Merritt Station Update

June 16 Update: Delays are in both directions for customers travelling south of Lake Merritt Station.

We will be replacing the power cable for our system south of Lake Merritt Station during some nights this summer. This is vital work to insure a reliable power supply for our trains. We need to single-track trains through the area for the safety of our crew. The work cannot be accomplished during our normal non-revenue work times.

The first dates are Tuesday night, June 12 through Saturday, June 16 from 10 pm until end of service. On Friday night, June 15, work will start later (after 11 pm) due to post game fireworks. Expect delays of 20-40 minutes. We will update our online article at bart.gov with future dates and issue service alerts.

We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your patience.
