Transbay-Transit-Center-9 The Transbay Transit Center construction process has seen a number of important milestones over its life to final buildout coming in 2017, and in the areas of the installation of micropiles and geothermal piping, cross lot bracing, waterproofing, and concrete pouring. But few of those milestones is more important than the one that was achieved to ring in the New Year: completing the excavation of the 4 block jobsite.

If you want to learn more about the project and its progress, come to a community meeting to be held Wednesday, January 15, 2014 at 12 noon, at the TJPA offices located at 201 Mission Street, Suite 2100.
