Balboa Park Station K Line Stops

Some of the construction improvements  included:

  • New switches and tracks inside the station for long-term maintenance

  • Three new poles along the K walkway for pedestrian safety

  • A new accessible platform in the station

  • Upgrades to the electrical system and tracks at Ocean Avenue and I-280, where trains enter and exit the Muni Green Yard, adjacent to the station

To minimize impacts to our customers, we coordinated three construction projects’ schedules to work inside the station at the same time – Balboa Park Station Area Improvements, Green Light Rail Track Replacements and BART’s Eastside Connection.

The K-Ingleside lines are now back to normal at Balboa Park:
