Construction Begins in December – San Francisco Civic Center Bike Station Improvements

 A message from BART:

Starting December 2014, as part of the Civic Center Station Modernization Improvements, work crews will begin to install the new bike station and bike racks at various locations inside the station. There will be some minor changes to pedestrian access routes, please look for signs and/or barricades. The work will take approximately six months to complete with estimated completion by May 2015.

All construction work will take place inside the Civic Center Station; however, temporary fencing and/or barricades may be placed on the plaza level to protect you and the construction. Although all work is planned to be performed during daytime hours, there may be times when work could be done on nights and weekends.

We do not expect to block the entrances to the station; however if it becomes unavoidable, signs will be posted to assist you and we will keep you informed of any changes through additional passenger bulletins and station announcements.

We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
