The Salesforce Transit Center and public rooftop park in San Francisco is reopening on July 1 after repairs finished on two cracked steel beams discovered at the newly opened building, the Transbay Joint Powers Authority announced Tuesday.
The $2.2 billion four-story transit center and park opened last August, but weeks later had to close after the discovery of the cracked beams on the third-level bus deck at Fremont Street. The TJPA, which owns and operates the site, said in May that repairs had been completed, and a Metropolitan Transportation Commission panel has conducted an independent review that concluded the center may now reopen.
San Francisco Municipal Railway and Golden Gate Transit will now resume bus service from the street-level bus plaza in early July, according to the TJPA. Alameda-Contra Costa Transit, Greyhound and WestCAT Lynx will also resume bus service later this summer. The 5.4-acre rooftop Salesforce Park, the Grand Hall, food trucks and public art installations will also open at the site July 1.
