Project Description

The city of Union City, California tasked RSE to provide engineering support services for the UPRR BART Pedestrian Crossing Project. The UPRR BART Pedestrian Crossing is a pedestrian at-grade crossing at the Union Pacific Railroad’s Oakland Subdivision tracks that will improve access between the BART station, transit facilities, and Transit Oriented Development (TOD) housing. Currently, patrons heading to the BART station from the TOD area have to walk north to Decoto Road, cross the existing at-grade railroad crossing, and then walk south to arrive at the BART station.  The new at-grade crossing will serve as a free, unrestricted passage and will meet the current safety standards while substantially reducing the number of pedestrians using the existing at-grade crossing at Decoto Road.


Scope of Services

RSE will review and package the plans, specifications and engineers estimates prepared by the design team (HDR, Inc. and ROMA Design Group) under a separate consultant agreement. As part of this project, RSE is responsible for following:


  • Reviewing UPRR's BART Pedestrian Crossing Maintenance and Operations Agreement and the 2017 CPUC Decision to Construct At-Grade Pedestrian Crossing

  • Reviewing the PS&E package focusing on the design of New Pedestrian Crossing, safety improvements of existing Decoto Road Crossing, and closing of I Street Crossing

  • Providing an independent QA/QC review and coordination with the design team

  • Providing bid support to include technical support during advertisement with responses to questions & RFIs

  • Providing coordination with UPRR to obtain schedule and approval for railroad related construction work

  • Reviewing UPRR's warning signal design to confirm signal placement configuration and to provide an independent cost estimate for signal construction that includes a signal equipment list and cost estimates.
