Alameda Sun: Ferry Facility Can Begin Construction, April 14, 2016


The San Francisco Bay Area Water Emergency Transportation Authority (WETA) announced two East Bay firms have been pegged to design and construct an operation and maintenance facility at Alameda Point. Overaa Construction of Richmond and Power Engineering Construction of Alameda will be tasked with building the Central Bay Operations and Maintenance Facility.

The two firms were awarded a $54.7 million contract to construct the facility, the richest contract WETA has ever doled out since its inception in 2008. The new maintenance facility will also include an operations control center for service dispatch and an emergency operations center for emergency-response coordination.

It is uncertain at this time what role each construction agency will have in building the facility or when construction will begin.
