On January 25th, 2013 GGSS members toured the Transbay Transit Center Project in San Francisco, California.
The trip was made possible by Stephen McLandrich and Michael Gardener of the ARUP San Francisco office
and included both a presentation about the project and a full site visit.
The project which is taking place near the corner of First and Mission Streets in downtown San Francisco
involves replacing an old existing terminal with a new larger transit center.
The Transbay Transit Center will serve as a regional hub and connect 11 different transit systems including
the future California High Speed Rail.
GGSS members had the pleasure of touring the project excavation while accompanied by Stephen and Michael
who explained the interesting geotechnical aspects of the project.
All of GGSS would like to thank both Stephen McLandrich and Michael Gardener of ARUP for taking the time
to be with us and providing a wonderful and exciting day!
