The following event is presented by our colleague organization ASCE Golden Gate

Please join American Society of Civil Engineers Golden Gate Branch for a Zoom Session on the BART Rebuilding Program
BART has been rebuilding its aging infrastructure in the past few years and is about 1/3 into its $3.5B Measure RR program. One segment of the presentation will highlight the tunnels & structures, and mech & power programs, and its design and construction challenges.

BART is also working through the Link21 program to transform the passenger rail network serving the 21-county Northern California Megaregion. The goal is to provide a faster, safer, more efficient, equitable, and affordable travel for everyone. Second segment of presentation will provide an overview of the building blocks for developing Link21 concepts and how the Link21 team will proceed with that work.
