hard-soled, closed-toes shoes and long pants are required; TJPA can loan hard hats, safety vests and goggles to attendees if needed.
TJPA requests that tour attendees meet in the lobby of 201 Mission Street at 2:25 pm so we can help you clear security and escort everyone up to Suite 2100. All tour attendees will be required to sign a waiver release form in order to attend the tour.
Tour groups will usually be walked along the center trestle and escorts will explain work underway. We are no longer able to take tours to the ‘bottom of the hole’ due to increased construction activity.
