The San Francisco County Transportation Authority (SFCTA), in collaboration with Caltrain and the San Francisco Department of Public Works, will hold a community workshop on two upcoming Quint Street projects in the Bayview neighborhood. The three agencies hope to attract construction contractors and workforce training organizations for the projects, which are scheduled to begin construction in 2015.
The upcoming workshop, scheduled for Tuesday, September 30 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the Southeast Community Facility (1800 Oakdale Avenue), is the first of two informational workshops about the potential contractor and workforce opportunities associated with the projects.
"As a member of the Caltrain and San Francisco County Transportation Authority boards, I am working to ensure that the Southeastern Neighborhoods and all San Francisco will gain the most benefit from the Quint-Jerrold bridge replacement project, including the creation of jobs and boosting our local economy thorough our investments in transportation infrastructure,” said Malia Cohen, District 10 Supervisor. “I commend these agencies for convening early outreach community meetings to maximize participation by our local contractors and workforce training providers."
The Quint Street Bridge Replacement Project will be constructed first and involves replacing the Quint Street Bridge with a berm and retaining wall to facilitate a potential new Oakdale Caltrain Station.
The Quint-Jerrold Connector Road Project construction will follow, creating a new road linking Quint Street just north of Oakdale Avenue to Jerrold Avenue along the west side of the Caltrain tracks.
A tour of the project site will take place immediately following the workshop. For more information about the Quint Street projects, visit www.sfcta.org/quint.
