Document Description
The San Francisco BART District is proposing to replace certain features and improve access to and from the existing Downtown Berkeley station for the Downtown Berkeley BART Plaza and Transit Improvement Project (Proposed Project). The Proposed Project would include the replacement of the Downtown Berkeley BART station Rotunda with a new main entrance structure and design and construction of various improvements for the five secondary BART entrances. In addition, the Project would include replacing some sidewalk surface materials, improving pedestrian-oriented lighting and landscaping using low-impact stormwater treatments, providing covered waiting areas for local and Transbay AC Transit bus stops, and installing wayfinding signage. The Proposed Project would also improve bicycle parking and disability access and integrate public art.
