City of Emeryville Public Works Department: South Bayfront Pedestrian Bridge – Emeryville, CA.
Summit Environmental Contractors provided transport and disposal of contaminated and hazardous soils. The construction job involved soil excavation and restoration from the future Horton Landing Park and surrounding vicinity. The primary chemicals of concern (COC) were heavy metals, petroleum hydrocarbons, pesticides and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). To date, Summit has removed and disposed 12,500 tons of material at a Class I landfill and 7,500 tons of material at a Class II landfill. Summit’s contribution supported the city’s objective to install a bridge connecting the Emeryville Greenway located on the east side to the Bay Trail located on the west. The 230-foot span provides pedestrians and bicyclists safe passage over the Union Pacific Railroad tracks from Central Emeryville to the Bay Street Center. The project is scheduled to be completed in the Fall of 2021 and has an estimated price tag of $21.4 million.
