Transbay Transit Center Update: Memorial Day Street Closure of First Street between Howard and Mission Streets May 25 to May 29

BOMA San Francisco Members:

The Transbay Transit Center Project is making great progress.

In order to keep on schedule and continue to move this project forward, there will be a full closure of First Street between Mission and Howard Streets on Memorial Day weekend in order to install the first of three traffic bridges in the project area.

Beginning Friday, May 25th at 8:00 p.m., First Street will be closed for the duration of Memorial Day weekend and will reopen at 5:00 a.m. on Tuesday, May 29th. During this time, work is permitted for 24 hours. The work taking place will include the demolition of the existing road and concrete base, the installation of the traffic bridge using two cranes, and paving of the traffic bridge. Backup alarms on equipment and swing alarms on equipment will be set to ambient but are required by OSHA as a safety measure.

Although the Transbay Join Powers Authority (TJPA) staff will make every effort to minimize impact to neighbors around the project, the bridge installation will be a significant noise producing operation, in particular the demolition of the existing road and underground structures, and assembling and setting the bridge. In order to complete this activity under the tight time restrictions, the contractor will have to work around the clock, that include some noise-generating activities during the evening hours as well.

For general questions regarding the Transbay Project please contact Stephanie Reichin or Adam Alberti at (415) 227-9700. For site specific questions please call the TJPA hotline at (415) 409-TJPA.
