Weekend work will be conducted from 9:00 PM on Friday until 6:00 AM Monday. The contractor does not anticipate working between 11:00 PM and 6:00 AM. However, if additional work is required, it will not include jack hammering or other excessive noise producing activities during the moratorium hours.
The large wrecking ball crane, “Big Red,” has been assembled on-site in front of 425 Mission Street (the old Terminal building). The contractor will begin use of the wrecking ball within the next two week period. An email update will be distributed prior to the first ball drop on the Terminal building itself.
Please note: Natoma Street, between First and Fremont Streets, will be reduced to one single east bound lane during the First Street weekend closures. The contractor will work with neighboring tenants to accommodate all deliveries.
The Temporary Terminal contractors, McGuire and Hester, will be working this weekend from 7 AM until 3 PM in order to install the remaining canopies.
Weekday Work: Weekday work between Monday, November 8, 2010, and Friday, November 12, 2010, will focus on the continued demolition of the East Terminal structure along with the Main Terminal roof and upper walls. The contractor will work between the hours of 7:00 AM and 11:00 PM. Lane restrictions will remain on Minna and Natoma Streets.
The Temporary Terminal contractors will be working from 7 AM until 5 PM and will continue the installation of the remaining canopies on the Temporary Terminal site.
Street and Sidewalk Closure: This weekend, First Street, between Howard and Mission Streets will be closed due to demolition of the over crossing from 9:00 PM on Friday until 5:00 AM on Monday. The west sidewalk and parking lane on Beale Street in between Mission and Howard Streets will be closed for the removal of the final support structure.
What to Expect Next Weekend (11/12-11/14): Next weekend, the contractor will continue demolition of the First Street over crossing which will require the weekend closure of First Street. This closure will begin late Friday night in order to remove the overhead electrical systems prior to demolition. The contractor will work all three shifts, including 11:00 PM to 7:00 AM, with a moratorium on jack hammering and other excessive noise producing activities between the hours of 11:00 PM and 6:00 AM. The Temporary Terminal contractors will continue the installation of the remaining canopies.
NOTICE: The demolition of the Terminal has begun and, in order to safely bring down the facility, the demolition contractor will be working, at a minimum, double shifts. It is highly likely that weekend and weekday 24-hour work will need to occur between now and November 23rd. The TJPA has instructed its demolition contractors to make every effort to minimize the impact to the community and to progress through this phase of work as quickly as possible. However, due to the nature of this portion of demolition, safety will require 24-hour work to be conducted regularly. Although it is the Transbay Transit Center Project's (TJPA) intention to maintain the moratorium, safety may require limited lifting of the noise restriction.
