A message from BART that may impact visitors to the LightHouse:
Starting February 2015, as part of the Civic Center Station Modernization Improvements, work crews will begin to install the new bike station and add bike racks at various locations inside the station.
The main work on the bike station will require partially closing a section of the corridor on the south side of the station at concourse level which provides access between the 7th Street and 8th Street entrances. The barricade will extend approximately 16 feet out from the wall and 128 feet along the wall. An approximately eight feet wide section of the corridor will remain open and accessible at all times. 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 July 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.
