BART will soon get to work on developing new technology to keep its track-side workers safe.
The Federal Transit Administration awarded BART a $5 five million grant.
The hope is to create a device to automatically stop an approaching train if workers are on the tracks.
The project is expected to take two years.
In October of 2013, two workers were killed by a BART train while inspecting tracks near the Walnut Creek station.
