Swinerton Builders and Sausal Corp. broke ground on two San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge toll plaza projects this month that will result in a new 22,600-sq-ft toll administration building in the parking lot directly east of the existing toll administration facility and a new 10,600-sq-ft structure to house Caltrans’ Bay Bridge tow services operations.
Swinerton’s bid to construct the new toll administration building was $13.7 million, with completion slated for late 2012. HNTB is the project designer.
Because the new building is a toll-related facility, it will be funded by the Bay Area Toll Authority through the agency’s toll bridge rehabilitation program.
Sausal Corp.’s bid to construct the new Caltrans-designed tow services building was $5.3 million. The new facility will replace the existing tow services building located west of the current toll operations center.
