BART to install dampers to reduce track noise

Published Thursday May 12

OAKLAND, Calif. – BART is working on saving its customers’ ears with a completely new project approved by the Board of Directors today.

The agency will install custom rail dampers on some of its noisiest sections of track: 3,000 ft. of trackway between Balboa Park and Daly City, as well as 840 ft. near the West Oakland station, BART officials commented today.

BART previously installed dampers on tracks between the North Berkeley and El Cerrito Plz. stations in 2012.

The dampers work by reducing vibrations on the rail. It costs $1 mill. per mile to install, so crews are targeting the noisiest sections of track.
