Rail News: Maintenance Of Way
BART preps track work in Oakland
Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) crews will rebuild track in downtown Oakland, California, over the Labor Day weekend.
Workers will replace rail and upgrade electrical systems, and perform other maintenance and repair work, BART officials said in a press release.
BART will suspend service on a portion of its lines for the first weekend in September so that crews can complete the work.
BART will shut down service between the 19th Street and Fruitvale stations, as well as between the West Oakland and Fruitvale stations. The agency will close the Lake Merritt station.
The closures will affect the Warm Springs, Dublin and Oakland Airport lines.
