Project Description

East Contra Costa Transit Development (EBART) Bay Pointe to Antioch, CA

The East Contra Costa BART Extension Project (eBART)  introduced a new rail passenger service comprising approximately ten miles of new track between the existing Pittsburg/Bay Point BART Station and the city of Antioch. Stations for the new service are in Pittsburg and  Antioch, and will use ticket vending machines and fare gates, according to the current BART system.

Construction for the project is in coordination with the Highway 4 widening project and the combined projects represent an approximately $1 Billion investment in the corridor.

PARIKH provided geotechnical engineering investigation for the entire corridor; including several bridge crossings, cut and cover tunnel at Highway 4, stations, and a maintenance facility at the track end in Antioch. The project included several bridges, retaining walls, tracks, and embankments along the existing UPRR tracks, at grade crossings, and parking lots.
