BART Update: Final weekend closure for Lafayette track rebuilding project
POSTED THURSDAY, OCT. 24, 2:30PM: There will be a track shutdown between the Orinda and Walnut Creek stations on Saturday, October 26 and Sunday, October 27. This will be the last of four scheduled shutdowns for a critical track rebuilding project near the Lafayette Station. Free buses will replace trains between Orinda and Walnut Creek throughout the weekend and riders should anticipate delays of 40 minutes or more. Also, the two left lanes of eastbound Highway 24 at Oak Hill Road in Lafayette will be closed starting at 11 pm Friday, October 25 until 7 am Monday, October 28 to allow space for construction equipment. Caltrans and BART will monitor backups in real time and will work together to reduce the number of lanes closed from two to one if driving delays approach 30 minutes.
