BART – Downtown Access Ramp & Lighting Project

The contractor also continued the demolition of existing storm drain facilities and site grading work to prep for start of drilled pile installation work. Due to a conflict with an underground Central Contra Costa Sanitary District’s concrete thrust block which is a concrete structure to protect pressure sewer pipes. The alignment of the proposed ramp and the location of retaining walls and piles has been modified. The designer, Leptien, Cronin, Cooper, Morris & Poore, Inc. (dba LCC, Inc.) has provided a revised set of drawings. This set has been submitted to Caltrans for review as project is on Caltrans’ property.

At the beginning of the project, temporary fencing was installed to close the pedestrian path at the end of Bryant Way – the fencing allows the work to be performed and is for the safety of pedestrians. The end of Bryant Way is the contractor’s construction yard; this temporary fencing reduces the ability to turn around, but the access to Theater Square parking remains open. Detour signs continue to be in place to direct pedestrian traffic around Theater Square via Brookwood.
