The California Department of Transportation (CALTRANS) has awarded a contract to Parsons Brinckerhoff (PB) to perform biological monitoring during construction of the new self-anchored suspension bridge in San Francisco Bay. The new bridge is intended to provide a seismically safe vehicular crossing between San Francisco, the San Francisco Peninsula and the East Bay. Construction on the bridge, which began in early 2002, is taking place in a biologically sensitive area and one of the world's richest estuary/marine environments. The US$10.9 million project is scheduled for completion in June 2008.
