ENGEO is part of the team providing engineering design services for the San Francisco to Merced section. ENGEO’s scope of services includes geotechnical engineering related to all aspects of the project.
The role includes identifying geotechnical and geologic constraints along the alignment and establishing appropriate mitigation for seismic risks. We are also providing geotechnical design criteria for cut and cover sections, hard rock and soft soil tunnels, below-grade stations and above-grade track and station components.
Also included are grade separations at a key peninsula location; construction of the underground-level train station structure and mezzanine for the Transbay Transit Center in San Francisco; new platforms and other improvements at the Caltrain station at Fourth and King Streets in San Francisco to make way for high-speed trains; and the first increment of the new marquee Diridon Station in downtown San Jose.
