BART Opens Crossover Tracks

The San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART) recently introduced service on two new sections of track crossovers on the Pittsburg/Bay Point Line, which allow trains to cross over at high speed to the opposite track to reroute service around a disabled train, problem or maintenance crew.

“The Central Contra Costa Crossover Project is the biggest track project in over a decade and I am thrilled to see it open and in service,” said BART Director Gail Murray, who represents riders in the area. “Perhaps the best benefit is that it increases capacity on our most used line without requiring additional rail cars, which BART presently does not have.”

The project cost $43 million, of which $25 million came from Regional Measure 2 funds, $13 million from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and the balance from BART capital funds.
