Oakland garage closures this week, plus construction updates
As construction continues on AC Transit’s East Bay Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system, which will begin serving the community this spring, access to the 1111 Franklin building garages will be limited. Please take note of these important updates.

Due to pre-paving and paving work on 12th Street next week, both 1111 Franklin garages will be unavailable at the following time:
- March 6, 7 – 9 p.m. — Egress only (no cars allowed to enter)
- March 6, 9 p.m. – Garage closes until 5:30 a.m. on March 7 (no access)

Nighttime paving on 11th and 12th streets
Beginning this week, BRT contractor O.C. Jones & Sons, Inc. will begin removing existing pavement on 11th and 12th Streets between Broadway and Lakeshore Boulevard. This work will be completed over multiple nights, roughly between the hours of 7:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m.
For most of the work, the contractor will maintain one lane in each direction on 11th and 12th Streets; however, there will be temporary night time closures at times. The contractor will have flaggers in place with vehicle access to and from side streets. Emergency vehicles will continue to have access to 11th and 12th Streets at all times.
