A stretch of Beale Street between Mission and Howard streets will be closed shortly after the Friday evening commute for a Transbay Transit Center project. But when the roadway reopens to traffic and pedestrians early Monday morning, it might be hard to notice any difference.

The project will create the third and final bridged roadway for the excavation work under the streets for what will become the train box of the future center.
Workers on Tuesday were welding metal for the four 45-foot-long segments that will be lifted onto 10 48-inch pilings. Once the bridge is completed, workers will be able to continue the excavation work, digging down about 60 feet below the street to construct the massive terminal that is expected to eventually house Caltrain and the state’s high-speed rail.
