BART set weekend work between Walnut Creek and Pleasant Hill

Written by 

BART crews are installing two new crossover tracks between Pleasant Hill and Walnut Creek stations. This work requires that the agency close the tracks between these two stations on two weekends: March 26-28 and May 28-30 (Memorial Day weekend). To accommodate customers, BART will provide a free bus bridge service between Walnut Creek and Pleasant Hill (in both directions) during both weekends. BART suggests that customers allow up to 20 additional minutes for the bus detour.

The Central Contra Costa Crossover Project will improve reliability and service on the Pittsburg/Bay Point Line. Not only will these crossover tracks help to reduce delays, but they will also give BART the flexibility to run more trains between Pleasant Hill and San Francisco, thus providing more seating during the peak commutes.
