Closing the street beneath the Quint St Caltrain bridge (known as "vacating" the street) is required so that they can begin the process of replacing the bridge with a permanent earthen berm. To close a city street requires legislation passed by the Board of Supervisors. The final hearing for the Quint Street vacation is tomorrow afternoon in the City Hall Legislative Chamber (Room 250) at 3.00 PM.
