East Contra Costa BART Extension Trackwork

Amoroso and JV partner began construction of the East Contra Costa BART Extension Project in August 2014. This 10-mile rail extension from the Pittsburg-Bay Point BART station to Antioch is set to open in Spring 2018. BART estimates the greenhouse gas emissions will be reduced by 260,000 lbs per day once completed and will reduce vehicle miles traveled by 99 million per year. The project will use independently propelled railcars know as Diesel Multiple Units (DMUs). The DMU train was chosen to bring BART-quality rail service to East County at a much lower cost than conventional BART.
