Possible weekend delays on BART Pittsburg Bay Point line through September

Written by 

For the next several weeks BART will run northbound Pittsburg/Bay Point line trains on a single track due to ongoing weekend track work for the Central Contra Costa Crossover Project. Single-tracking will take place on weekends only and the agency expects to complete this work in late September. Single-tracking may result in delays of up to 15 minutes on weekend trains going toward the Pittsburg/Bay Point Station.

The Central Contra Costa Crossover Project will be completed in late 2010 and will add two new crossover tracks between Pleasant Hill and Walnut Creek stations. Crossover tracks mean reduced delays on the Pittsburg/Bay Point line and also give BART the flexibility to run more trains between Pleasant Hill and San Francisco to provide more seating for passengers during the peak commute times.
