Construction to Begin at Fremont BART Station
As part of the BART Warm Springs Extension, construction will begin at the Fremont Station on Saturday, August 3, 2013. The work will occur in three stages. Stage 1 and Stage 2 will involve reconfiguration of bus circulation routes and customer parking in the southeast portion of the BART Fremont Station parking lot. Bus schedules will not be affected. There will be a reduction to the number of permit parking spaces available, however all existing permits will continue to be honored. This reduction will be partially offset by the addition of on-street parking spaces on nearby Civic Center Drive. Parking impacts in this area are expected to last approximately three weeks per stage.
Stage 3 will begin Fall 2013 in the southwest portion of the parking lot where construction of the trackway embankment will begin as well as a new overpass over Walnut Avenue. This work will mean significant changes for pedestrian access and vehicle parking at Fremont Station. During Stage 3 work, free remote parking and shuttle service will be provided to offset the loss of daily fee parking spaces. More detailed information will be provided in advance of this work in the Fall.
You can also expect temporary construction related noise, dust and traffic impacts. BART will monitor noise and dust and will work to minimize any inconveniences to the surrounding community.
