L.B. Foster contracted the material from the mill and delivered it to the Port of San Francisco. L.B. Foster’s piling professionals managed logistics from the port to a steel fabricator for additional finishing and transport back to the jobsite. “More than 160 truckloads of pipe as heavy as 17 tons each were required for the excavation of this signature transit project,” said Dan Schrager, L.B. Foster Construction Products Senior Sales Representative.
The multi-billion dollar Transbay Transit Center replaces the old bus terminal near San Francisco’s Embarcadero with a state-of-the -art regional hub that links the city to eight Bay Area counties and beyond with rail and bus transit systems. The new California High Speed Rail system will also travel from the Transbay Transit Center to Southern California once that ambitious project is completed. Construction of the new transit hub began in 2011, with completion currently scheduled for 2018.
