Deferred Projects

Project Name Description
SFMTA  Modern maintenance and storage facilities are vital to ensuring reliable transit service and that SFMTA’s fleet is in a state of good repair. The SFMTA’s Building Progress facility capital program supports upgrades to obsolete facilities to make them safe and efficient. The most urgent of these capital needs have been prioritized, but others remain unfunded.
The SFMTA has also deferred major corridor projects that assist Vision Zero pedestrian and bicycle safety goals; numerous Muni Forward corridor projects to make transit more effective; the full build out and replacement of station elevators; audible pedestrian signals to enhance accessibility; seismic retrofits and routine state of good repair upgrades of its parking garages; the full expansion of its light rail vehicle fleet; major track overhauls on the M-Ocean View line; a new train control system to improve on time performance; the full realization of the Rail Capacity Strategy; and other system wide state of good repair projects.
The cost of SFMTA’s deferred projects is approximately $10.9 billion through FY2031.
SFO As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting economic uncertainty, the Airport has reprioritized its capital projects to determine which projects will move forward and which projects will be suspended. As of July 2020, the Director has suspended $1.37 billion in capital projects from its CIP, including the Terminal 3 West project, and has reduced its available program reserve by $168 million, from $318 million to $150 million. Other notable project suspensions include the International Terminal phase II project ($53 million reduction), power and lighting improvements ($53 million reduction), NetZero Energy projects ($48 million reduction), and airfield improvements ($47 million reduction). The Airport continues to monitor passenger traffic and operations to inform its decisions to restart suspended projects, if at all.
