We Apologize For Noise In Your Neighborhood
October 16, 2009
Dear BART Neighbor:
Beginning Friday, October 23 at 3:00am through Monday, October 26 at 3:00am BART will operate a generator to provide alternate power to the Glen Park BART station so PG&E can safely complete necessary retrofit work. All regular power to the Glen Park BART station will not be available to BART while PG&E completes their 3-day project. PG&E will retrofit their 12KV Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) via a manhole located along Diamond Street within the sidewalk area.
BART will obtain power through two generators that will be parked on Diamond Street adjacent to the Glen Park BART station. One generator will operate 24-hours a day for three consecutive days while the second generator will be on standby if needed. The generators are necessary so that BART can continue to provide transit service to our patrons during this project.
We apologize in advance for the inconvenience of noise caused by the generator during this 3-day project. PG&E retrofit work has required the generator to be placed in close proximity to the work area and the station power transformer.
We thank you in advance for your patience during this PG&E project. If you have questions about this project please call Mac Gines, BART Engineering at (510) 464-6694 or Mark Pfeiffer, BART Engineering (510) 464-6692.
