The construction activity to build the stations and infrastructure for the BRT system may include: demolition, excavation, pipe installation, paving, traffic signals, platform construction, curb ramps, lighting and landscaping. As part of the BRT project, you may also see local utility companies such as PG&E, EBMUD, AT&T and others working to relocate utility lines to make way for the new BRT infrastructure. While not all work by these companies will be associated with the BRT project, some of it will be.

We know that major construction can be an inconvenience to your normal activity. In an effort to minimize disruptions, we have limited construction days to Monday – Friday between the hours 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. While we do not anticipate deviations from this schedule, certain construction work may require operations to extend through 7 p.m., and possibly Saturdays and nights (if approved by the Cities of Oakland, San Leandro and Caltrans.)

East Bay-based general contractor O.C. Jones & Sons, Inc. and their subcontractors will not need to access your building or property. Nevertheless, safety is the primary goal during construction, so the contractor may temporarily post signs that restrict or reroute vehicles, pedestrians, bicycles and parking. Please abide by all posted construction signs and DO NOT enter any designated construction area.

AC Transit and our contractor are making every effort to minimize inconveniences to residents and businesses. We are keeping residents and businesses in construction areas notified in advance of AC Transit estimated construction start dates. If you have any questions or concerns about the work, please Contact Us

In addition to breaking out the construction into zones and phases, the Construction Impact Mitigation Plan provides guidelines and clarity on the District’s commitment to mitigate temporary impacts on businesses and communities during construction.
