San Francisco Public Works Third Street Bridge Rehabilitation

California Engineering Contractors, Inc. was awarded the contract for the Third Street Bridge Rehabilitation in San Francisco, California!

This San Francisco Public Works project was procured through a Request for Qualifications with a short timeframe. The single-stage pursuit process placed more emphasis on the SOQ to communicate California Engineering Contractors’ (CEC) project team, experience, and preconstruction and construction approaches to the San Francisco Public Works selection committee.

The Mission Critical team worked with CEC through team charrettes and staged review cycles to ensure that the appropriate approach, technical elements, and value engineering aspects were included in the submitted document. With the tight timeline for submittal, the team had to organize and mobilize quickly, and Mission Critical had to coordinate the document design, page layouts and content approaches to meet the deadline and exceed expectations. Ultimately, Mission Critical and CEC were able to create a successful document to reflect their winning team for this Third Street Bridge Rehabilitation Project.

The Third Street Bridge, also known as the “Lefty O’Doul Bridge”, is scheduled for rehabilitation work to sustain the integrity of the bridge and to address corrosion issues. The project scope will involve repairs or replacement of damaged steel members, welds, concrete counterweights, support piles, bridge fenders, spot removal of rust and associated priming and recoating, removal and replacement of the steel bridge deck and other associated work. This is a unique project that, due to the nature and location of the bridge, will involve the use of underwater divers, barges, and rafts. Additionally, there will be a temporary installation of protective barriers and containment curtains to protect the waterway and the public from debris.
