Abstract: As part of improvements to a marine oil terminal in California, the design team had to ensure that a nearly century-old timber trestle met contemporary requirements related to operations, seismic activity, and anticipated rises in sea level. Completed this past May, the timber structure is the first in the San Francisco Bay Area to be upgraded to meet such requirements.
