SFMTA announces bid for subway station project

The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) recently announced the contract for the Central Subway Union Square/Market Street Station, a $210 million project, has gone to bid.

The station will connect to the existing Powell Street Station through an underground, concourse-to-concourse walkway, SFMTA officials said in a prepared statement. The link will provide access to Bay Area Rapid Transit and other area public transportation services.

“The Union Square area, already a vital job center and a premier destination for San Franciscans and visitors, will benefit greatly from the Central Subway,” said Board of Supervisors President David Chiu, whose district includes Union Square Plaza.

The station was designed by the Central Subway Design Group, a joint venture of Parsons Brinckerhoff, Michael Willis Architects and Kwan Henmi Architects.

Bids are due July 11.
