SFMTA – Line Extension Projects

In addition to the renewal and enhancement programs, emerging needs at the SFMTA include the T-Third line extension to Fisherman’s Wharf, the F-Line Extension to the Fort Mason Center, and major upgrades to the M-Ocean View line, as well as planning for sea level rise and increasing rail capacity. Other further emerging major corridor projects are being identified in the Transit Corridors Study in ConnectSF.

SFO – Emerging Projects

The Airport completed a Recommended Airport Development Plan (ADP) in September 2016. The Recommended ADP defines a series of recommended projects that would accommodate potential growth up to approximately 71.1 million annual passengers, serves as a roadmap to guide long-term Airport development, and supports the Airport’s overarching strategic objectives. Recommended ADP projects include a new terminal concourse, replacement of the Central Garage, and improvements to the International Terminal Complex.

The recommended ADP is currently undergoing required environmental review, a 24-month process that started in July 2017. Projects included in the Recommended ADP will not necessarily be undertaken, but could be added to future capital improvement plans when and as they are warranted by traffic growth or other factors, subject to all applicable approvals.

SFCTA – I-280 Interchange Improvements at Balboa Park

Recommendations from the Balboa Park Station Area Circulation Study, adopted by the SFCTA in June 2014, include realignment of the southbound off-ramp from I-280 to Ocean Avenue (Element 1) and closure of the northbound on-ramp from Geneva Avenue (Element 2). Both provide extensive pedestrian and safety benefits while minimizing traffic impacts to I-280 and the surrounding areas. The ramp closure analysis for Element 1 was completed in December 2016. Caltrans documentation and environmental clearance for Element 2 is scheduled for completion in November 2018. The rough order of magnitude estimate for planning, design, and implementation is up to $20 million for Element 1 and up to $7.3 million for Element 2.

Multiple Departments – ConnectSF In addition to strengthening and adapting vulnerable infrastructure, the City is also working to make sure that the development of the transportation network supports San Franciscans’ vision for the future. With the help of thousands of residents who participated in focus groups, surveys, and targeted outreach, ConnectSF developed a vision, goals, and objectives that will guide the city’s long-range transportation planning. In the next phase of work, the City and partner agencies will make sure that plans, policies, and investments support the ConnectSF vision through the Transit Corridors Study, the Streets and Freeways Study, and the San Francisco Transportation Plan 2050.
