Tunnel Becomes Terminal
imagine--building a tunnel under the Bay for a transit system! Long-time
residents report that initially the idea was incredible. Would they
really be able to do it?
Of course, they did. BART now whisks passengers back and forth in the
tube between Oakland and San Francisco. You can see the soil that came
out of the tunnel under the Bay at the end of 7th St. The Port of
Oakland's 7th Street terminal was the last landfill project in the Bay
of the Bay Conservation and Development Commission (BCDC).
