AIRPORT RAIL TRANSIT SYSTEM
San Francisco International Airport
The Rail Transit System, a critical component of the San Francisco International Airport’s Master Plan, was built to accommodate the increase in passenger volume. The transportation system expansion included a new Airport Rail Transit (ART) system, an automated guideway transit system connecting the many facilities and services provided by SFIA. ART serves all domestic and international airlines, the airport parking facilities, employee workplaces, rental car facilities and BART.
Construction of the $80 million guideway structure consisted of the foundations, columns, and 1.33 miles of elevated dual guideway superstructure to support the new system and a portion of the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) system at the airport. The project included 136,000 LF of driven piles, 7,500 lineal feet of GeoJet piles, 44,815 cubic yards of pre-stressed concrete box girder, 30,055 cubic yards of concrete foundation, 8,930 cubic yards of concrete columns, 21,658,650 pounds of reinforcing steel, utility work, and street reconstruction.
EPC’s responsibilities as a subconsultant included: construction management, field engineering, construction inspection, quality assurance, change order negotiations, and coordination with other master plan projects.
