Power outage at Lake Merritt station causes major BART delays

A power outage on a platform at the Lake Merritt BART station caused major delays to the system Tuesday morning, officials with the agency said.

The power outage occurred on Platform One at the station and caused delays of up to 30 minutes, according to the agency. Repair crews worked to restore the power at the station.

It was not known immediately what caused the outage.

Trains were run on a single track through the West Oakland, Lake Merritt, 12th Street Oakland City Center and 19th Street stations, spokeswoman Anna Duckworth said.

The power went out around 8:30 a.m.  Around 9:50 a.m., BART put out a statement on social media saying delays were down to 20 minutes.

Bart is recovering from an earlier problem. There is a 20 minute delay in the Dublin / Pleasanton, Richmond, Berryessa and Daly City directions due to an earlier equipment problem at Lake Merritt station on the Berryessa Line.
