BART IMPACT PROGRAM: ENVIRONMENT PROJECT PRELIMINARY FINDINGS - BARRIERS

The construction of the BART system inevitably resulted in changes to patterns of vehicular and pedestrian movement. This preliminary analysis assesses the effect of BART facilities on the ease and hindrance of vehicular and pedestrian movement in areas adjacent to BART lines and stations. The assessment describes and quantifies the relationship between BART and other transportation facilities (freeways, railroads and arterials) acting as barriers. It also includes a description of the extent and locations where BART has created new barriers to pedestrian and vehicular movement patterns, and goes on to describe how BART has tried to mitigate barrier impact.
