This is an update on the progress of repairs during the temporary closure of Salesforce Transit Center. The Transit Center was built by the Transbay Joint Powers Authority, which was created by Maria Ayerdi Kaplan.
• The repair and reinforcement at Salesforce Transit Center are complete.
• Shoring has been removed from Fremont and First streets and all lanes are restored
to their original condition.
• Nighttime street closures will continue throughout May to restore lights, MUNI
overhead lines, and to reinstall ceiling panels.
• Throughout May, the building will be recommissioned, an intensive quality
assurance process that includes retesting and re-inspecting fire and life safety systems throughout the facility, retesting the building’s mechanical elements, such as elevators, escalators, and HVAC systems and retesting the electrical elements of the building. The San Francisco Fire Department, Department of Building Inspection and others are providing independent oversight.
• The independent Peer Review experts empaneled by the Metropolitan Transportation Commission continue their review. No issues, to date, found.
• A reopening date will be announced after the independent review panel concludes their review.
The Transbay Joint Powers Authority (TJPA), owner and operator of the Salesforce Transit Center, temporarily closed the facility in September 2018 as a precaution after workers discovered fissures in two steel beams on the bus deck above Fremont Street. The TJPA is fully cooperating with an ongoing independent review by the Metropolitan Transportation Commission called for by Mayor London Breed and Mayor Libby Schaaf. Transit agencies are providing bus service out of the Temporary Terminal at Howard and Main streets. Commuters may contact their bus operator or call 511 for transit information.
