BART and the City of Fremont have started construction on a public plaza and pedestrian bridge on the west side of the Warm Springs/South Fremont BART Station. The bridge will span the width of the Union Pacific tracks to increase accessibility to the Warm Springs/South Fremont BART Station for pedestrians, bicyclists, employees from nearby businesses, and residents in the new Warm Springs/South Fremont communities. The plaza will provide a community gathering space with seating, bicycle lockers, solar charging stations, an information kiosk, and public art.
The Warm Springs/South Fremont BART Station will remain open during construction, and a barricade will be installed next to the station agent’s booth to separate the work zone from public space. Minor construction activities will take place on the platform and concourse levels of the station, including modifications to signage, directional tiles, guardrails, and the station’s communications systems. This project is scheduled for completion in 2020.
