Directors to vote on Transbay Tube retrofit project

Bay Area Rapid Transit District directors will vote today on whether to authorize giving Bechtel Corp. an additional $81 million and four more years to complete retrofit work on the system’s Transbay Tube.

BART spokesman Linton Johnson said the agency has known for four years that it would have to spend more money to complete the work, so the cost increase isn’t a surprise.

He said the money likely will come from the $980 billion bond issue that Bay Area voters passed in 2004 to help pay for retrofitting work and that no new money would be needed.
