Start of construction at Hayward BART Station

Start of construction at Hayward BART Station

As part of our systemwide Earthquake Safety Program, we will begin strengthening elevated structures outside Hayward Station to better withstand future earthquakes. This work will require the temporary closure of the sidewalk near the northwest corner of the Hayward Station parking lot starting the week of Monday November 5, 2012. Pedestrians will be detoured to the opposite side of the street (download the Passenger Bulletin for a map). During the project, you can expect temporary sidewalk and lane closures, as well as temporary reduction of available street parking. Please watch for signs with safety information and other notices. We appreciate your patience and cooperation during this work, and will attempt to minimize construction-related noise, dust and inconvenience.
