The California State Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will conduct an information session on the 04-012064 construction contract for the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge East Span Seismic Safety Project. The San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge East Span Seismic Safety Project is divided into multiple contracts. Separate bid packages will be issued for each contract. Caltrans awarded the Geofill and Skyway contracts in early January 2002.

This outreach briefing will focus on the Self-Anchored Suspension Span/Yerba Buena Island Transition Structures contract, 04-012064, which will be advertised in Fall 2002. The Self-Anchored Suspension Span consists of a 160-meter single steel tower with a main cable and inclined suspenders supporting the steel orthotropic decks of a 385-meter main span and a 180-meter back span. The Yerba Buena Island Transition Structure consists of cast in place concrete viaducts.

This information session will allow contractors, subcontractors, fabricators, and suppliers to better understand the project. Those in attendance will be able to share ideas and information. Caltrans is interested in hearing the comments of contractors and others about the project.

"Buy America" requirements apply to this project. Visit the Federal Highway Administration website at for details regarding "Buy America."

If you would like to attend the information session, please respond by Wednesday, March 6, 2002. Responses should identify your company and the number attending. Space is limited. You may respond by fax, e-mail or U.S. mail to:
