Utility Potholing on Townsend Street near Fourth Street (Amended)

DTX/The Portal

The Transbay Joint Powers Authority, delivering The Portal, also known as the Downtown Rail Extension (DTX) project, through its subcontractor, Bess (Bess) Testlab, Inc., will be potholing utilities (i.e. domestic water, sewer, power, telecom/data, etc) on the street and sidewalk along Townsend Street near Fourth Street to obtain important utility information to inform The Portal. Bess will pothole one utility at a time. As the utility is exposed and data is collected, work crews will backfill and cover the exposed potholes with a temporary cold-patch. Once all utility potholing is complete, a restoration work crew will apply the final pavement hot patch to seal the area.

The work will occur from Monday, February 12, 2024 to Wednesday, February 14, 2024, with expected hours of operations from
7:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., Monday – Friday. Schedule may change without prior notice.
