Track work may cause weekend BART delays

Written by 

Beginning February 20 BART will need to 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 BART expects to end this work in mid-May. Single-tracking trains may result in slight delays of up to 10 to 15 minutes on weekend trains going toward Pittsburg/Bay Point Station.

The Central Contra Costa Crossover Project will add two new crossover tracks between Pleasant Hill and Walnut Creek, Calif., stations. Not only will these crossover tracks mean reduced delays on the Pittsburg/Bay Point line, they will also give us the flexibility to run more trains between Pleasant Hill and San Francisco, thus providing more seating during the peak commutes.
