Document Description
The San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART) is an electricity powered commuter transit line. Electrification is provided by "traction power" substations located along the transit line right-of-way. BART proposes improvements to one of its existing gap breaker stations, referred herein as "KYD". KYD is located at the southwestern quadrant of the 7th Street and Wood Street intersection, between two single-column bents below the aerial structure of the K-Line in the City of Oakland. The proposed project would require replacement of the existing gap breaker station equipment. The gap breaker station isolates appropriate electrified third rail sections for maintenance and repair purposes and de-energizes third rail sections during emergencies for the K- Line. Please see Attachment A for additional information Note: See NOE for full description
