The San Francisco Salesforce Transit Center indefinitely closed around 17:00 (local time) on Tuesday, September 25. Workers discovered a crack in a support beam, prompting engineers to close the station to perform inspections. Bus service was moved to the nearby Temporary Transbay Terminal. Authorities expect the transit center to be closed for the morning commute on Wednesday, September 26. Some main streets in the area, including Fremont Street, will also be closed. Significant transportation delays are expected.
Salesforce Transit Center opened in August 2018 following eight years of construction. The facility was designed to provide bus and rail services, but budgetary shortfalls have delayed the completion of rail projects.
Individuals in or traveling to San Francisco are advised monitor the situation, and anticipate significant transportation disruptions, particularly bus service and vehicle commuting via the Bay Bridge or Interstate-80.
