BART expects the preliminary work to be completed by the end of the month.
BART began building Monday the new plaza and passenger loading zone at the south side of the Balboa Park BART Station beside the Upper Yard affordable housing development.
The first phase of construction involves rebuilding sidewalk and a Muni bus stop. The work is expected to be completed by the end of December.
The bus stop will be relocated to the crosswalk for the old passenger loading zone, which will be closed to vehicles.
"Barricades and temporary signage will be installed to provide safe access for pedestrians along Geneva Avenue and to the BART A1 Entrance," BART said in a news release. "The BART entrance will remain open during this first phase."
Pedestrian access is protected by barriers.
