Treasure Island Ferry Terminal is a critical component of the Treasure Island Community Development transportation plan. By 2035, 24,000 new residents will be able to call Treasure Island & Yerba Buena Island home. The new ferry terminal will bring necessary commuter service to these residents while adding to the waterfront lifestyle of living on the island.
There are two major components of the design-build terminal. One is the over-water ferry terminal itself - which marries up to a land-based transportation hub at the entrance to Treasure Island. The ferry terminal is made up of a fixed concrete pier, a gangway, and a steel float; the terminal will support both regional ferries and water taxis.
The second component is a large concrete breakwater designed to protect the ferry terminal from substantial swell and wind conditions inherent on the San Francisco side of Treasure Island. The breakwater allows ferries to approach and safely board passengers at the ferry terminal. The breakwater is constructed of 815 lineal-feet of continuous vertical precast concrete sheet piling with concrete batter piles every 6 to 18 feet for lateral load strength and a continuous concrete cap cast over both the batter and sheet piling.
Much credit for the success of this project goes to Power's field construction team. Their years of expertise in navigating challenging water conditions and overcoming access obstacles highlighted not only their hard work but also their exceptional skills.
Treasure Island now proudly features a state-of-the-art ferry terminal, providing residents and visitors with a scenic 10-minute commute to and from downtown San Francisco.
