BART Oakland Airport Connector

Oakland, CA

The Oakland Airport Connector (OAC) links the Coliseum BART Station with Oakland International Airport via an automated people mover system elevated above traffic on Hegenberger Road. The need for the OAC Project was based on recognition of existing transportation constraints in the Bay Area, increased growth at OAK, anticipated future public and private development, and related congestion along roadways that serve the area. Improvements to the existing transit service to OAK encourage motorists to ride transit to OAK, thereby providing some relief to the congested traffic conditions in the area.

ANDREGG’s tasks involved control work, construction staking layout and as-built surveys. Project challenges include a fast paced schedule and operations with very tight tolerances under stringent safety and access restrictions.
