The Salesforce Transit Center and public rooftop park in San Francisco is reopening on July 1 after repairs finished on two cracked steel beams discovered at the newly opened building, the Transbay Joint Powers Authority announced Tuesday.%INLINE%

The $2.2 billion four-story transit center and park opened last August, but weeks later had to close after the discovery of the cracked beams on the third-level bus deck at Fremont Street.%INLINE%

The TJPA, which owns and operates the site, said in May that repairs had been completed, and a Metropolitan Transportation Commission panel has conducted an independent review that concluded the center may now reopen.%INLINE%

San Francisco Municipal Railway and Golden Gate Transit will now resume bus service from the street-level bus plaza in early July, according to the TJPA. Alameda-Contra Costa Transit, Greyhound and WestCAT Lynx will also resume bus service later this summer.%INLINE%

The 5.4-acre rooftop Salesforce Park, the Grand Hall, food trucks and public art installations will also open at the site July 1.%INLINE%
