A 100-year-old bridge used for Caltrain service in San Francisco’s Hunters Point neighborhood will be replaced with a new structure Saturday morning.

Construction crews will add a new single-span steel bridge above a portion of Jerrold Avenue, part of a $5 million project to replace the existing bridge, which has become structurally deficient over the past century.

Jerrold Avenue is currently closed to traffic between Rankin and Quint streets, and will remain so until Nov. 5 because of the project. The bridge replacement is expected to be wrapped up completely during the early morning hours of Saturday. The project will start at midnight and will be done before service begins on Saturday morning, according to Caltrain.

As a result of the project, passengers at the Bayshore Station will board from a single platform, but other than that, no service will be affected by the bridge replacement.
