Oakland Airport Connector-March 2013
Sunday, March 17, 2013
BART and Caltrans closed all lanes of northbound Interstate 880 (I-880) at Hegenberger Road in Oakland on Sunday, March 17 between the hours of 1 a.m. and 6 a.m. to allow crews to construct the Oakland Airport Connector (OAC) system’s guideways above I-880. The aerial work to install this segment of guideway signifies a major milestone for the Oakland Airport Connector project. The more than 300-foot long span — comprised of more than 150 tons of steel supported by concrete columns over the highway’s northbound and southbound lanes — will allow the cable-propelled system to travel above highway traffic to and from the Coliseum/Oakland Airport BART Station and Oakland International Airport.
