Authorities announced on Wednesday, September 26, that the San Francisco Salesforce Transit Center would remain closed through at least Friday, October 5. During an overnight inspection, engineers discovered a second crack in a support beam for a parking structure located across Fremont Street. Bus service will be moved to the nearby Temporary Transbay Terminal and some main streets in the area, including Fremont Street, will be closed. Significant transportation delays, particularly affecting Interstate 80, are expected.
The Salesforce Transit Center closed on Tuesday, September 25, after workers discovered a crack in a support beam. The facility opened in August 2018 following eight years of construction. It is designed to provide bus and rail service, though budgetary shortfalls have delayed the completion of rail projects.
Individuals in or traveling to San Francisco, especially from Oakland or the East Bay area, are advised monitor the situation, and anticipate significant transportation disruptions, particularly bus service and vehicle commuting via the Bay Bridge or I-80.
