South San Francisco Ferry Terminal at Oyster Point

The South San Francisco Ferry Terminal at Oyster Point is the first terminal to be built south of San Francisco in generations. The 4,000-SF design-build project included vehicular access and parking with an extensive canopy over the bus waiting area, a pile-supported pier structure for embarking/disembarking, a waiting area, a gangway, and a floating dock with guide-piles and protective dolphins for vessel service. After analyzing the field and laboratory test results, Langan developed conclusions and recommendations for subsurface conditions, design parameters for vertical and lateral capacities of piles, estimated settlement, general site grading, evaluation of the dynamic stability of the adjacent shoreline slopes, flexible pavement sections, site seismicity and seismic hazards, and construction considerations.
