Maria Ayerdi Kaplan’s Salesforce Transit Center Security Plan Includes Barricades

Maria Ayerdi Kaplan’s Salesforce Transit Center Security Plan Includes Barricades

As Transbay Joint Powers Authority Executive Director, Maria Ayerdi Kaplan placer a premium on security after the horrible events of September 11th, 2001. The objective was to make the giant building able to sustain a terrorist attack.

Part of the plan is under the feet of people who walk by and under Salesforce Transit Center:: panels marked with yellow and black stripes to stop vehicle and bus entry into the complex.

In an emergency, the panels rise up and become barricades to the Transit Center. In normal operation they seem to be a pathway, but security officials would prefer that patrons walk on the white stripe pathway.

Stay tuned.

Salesforce Transit Center Vlog On Upgrades, Maria Ayerdi Kaplan Work To Build TTC

The Transbay Transit Center is set to reopen Wednesday, October 17th. After discovery of cracks in steel beams above the bus ramp over Fremont Street, and similar but smaller problems over 1st Street, the facility was closed for upgrades.

“It is important that we have an extremely robust shoring system to ensure that all levels of the transit center are safe and secure. Unfortunately, this requires us to keep the street closed until this work is complete. We will reopen Fremont Street as soon as safely possible and apologize for the ongoing impact to the public,” said Mark Zabaneh, Executive Director of the Transbay Joint Powers Authority.

Fremont Street is set to reopen on Monday, October 15th.

A point must be made in the wake of findings and presentation by Salesforce Transit Center Developer Maria Ayerdi Kaplan. Without her work, the Transit Center would have never happened. Moreover, the steel market after the Great Recession caused the cost overruns to the project, as well as a need to install a more robust security system.
