Light Rail Segment E was one of six light rail projects extending the Muni Light Rail system from Downtown to Visitation Valley. Segment E includes light rail tracks from Donner Avenue across Highway 101 to Hester Avenue along Third Street, a distance of about one mile. The project was managed as two distinct projects, the Muni work, and Caltrans work.

The Muni work consisted of relocating existing utilities, installing the light rail tracks, three station platforms, an overhead centenary system (OCS) for traction power, and general site work along Third Street.

The Caltrans portion of the project consisted of widening the existing Third Street / Bayshore Bridge, building a new off ramp for Northbound 101, and reconstructing the Hester Ave and Meade Ave intersections.

Shimmick self-performed the electrical scope of work.
