Role in the Project
Jacobs is the lead for planning and design of the proposed 7th Street Improvements including Traffic Analysis and the Condition Assessment of Wharves 6 ½ and 7. Seventh Street provides access for cars and trucks into the Port of Oakland but the existing grade separation with the railroad tracks is not sufficient for the future expansion of rail and vehicle traffic. Jacobs will perform Alternatives Analysis of 7th Street improvements, an intersection with Maritime Street, enhanced traffic flows of on-site container trucks with normal traffic and a new grade separation with the proposed railroad layout.
Jacobs is also performing a condition assessment of Wharves 6 ½ and 7, which includes an above-water inspection of the structural elements, a subsequent structural capacity analysis of the wharves for future waterfront use, development of design and loading criteria and recommendations for repair and upgrades.
