two major active faults, the san andreas and the hayward faults pass through the area. the san andreas fault is not crossed by the bart system. the berkeley hills tunnel penetrates the hayward fault at right angles. the hayward fault runs north-south on the east side of the bay. movement along this fault is of the order of 1/8 inch per : J G Thon, M J Amos. Behavior of the Bay Area Rapid Transit tunnels through the Hayward Fault by Ian R Brown Investigates the response of the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) tunnels through the Berkeley Hills to slow right-lateral slippage along the Hayward fault. Survey data, coupled with observations of track alignment and cracking pattern in the concrete liner. The East Bay Municipal Utility District's Claremont Tunnel is an 18,foot long water tunnel that crosses the Hayward Fault zone near Oakland, California. It was orig-inally completed in Behavior of the Bay Area Rapid Transit tunnels. through the Hayward Fault, Final Report: U.S. guide book for field trip excursions, Field Trip.

The Hayward Fault Zone is a geologic fault zone capable of generating destructive fault is about 74 mi ( km) long, situated mainly along the western base of the hills on the east side of San Francisco runs through densely populated areas, including Richmond, El Cerrito, Berkeley, Oakland, San Leandro, Castro Valley, Hayward, Union City, Fremont, and San Jose. The Hayward is considered a very dangerous fault since it runs through a densely populated region and has not shown any major movement for nearly years; it has great potential for producing a large earthquake (estimated at magnitude ). The Hayward Fault is located just about a mile southwest of the Caldecott Tunnel's west portal.   Philibosian says we’re currently within a year window, during which there is a 72 percent likelihood of a earthquake or larger happening in the Bay Area. “The Hayward fault . Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) is a rapid transit system serving the San Francisco Bay heavy-rail public transit and subway system connects San Francisco with cities in the East Bay and suburbs in northern San Mateo operates five lines on miles ( km) of track with 44 stations in four counties. With an average weekday ridership of , passengers, [1] and ,

Report UMTA-CA, Washington, DC. Bay Area Faults The San Francisco Bay Area is transected by a series of subparallel faults that together accommodate the relative motion between the Pacific and North American plates. The San Andreas Fault and 6 other significant fault zones are present in the Bay Area: the Calaveras, Concord-Green Valley, Greenville, Hayward, Rodgers Creek.

However, the more precisely located creep evidence in the Bay Area Rapid Transit tunnels (km ) (Brown and others, ) appears to lie vertically below the geomorphic trace. The exact creep locations in the water tunnels must be verified before drawing any conclusions regarding dip.
