Document Description
Note: Reference SCH# 2001032088 The proposed project consists of refinements to the previously approved Downtown Rail Extension (DTX) throat structure, the extension of the underground rail levels to accommodate high-speed trains, and other refinements in Transbay Transit Center Program elements and/or new project details. The project will complete the 1.3-mile rail extension from Fourth and King Streets underground into the new Transit Center (now under construction) and will also allow for future high-speed trains to arrive in and depart from downtown San Francisco. The primary purposes of the Project, as defined in the Transbay Transit center Program 2004 FEIS/EIR, are to improve public access to bus and rail services by replacing the former Transbay Terminal with a new Transit Center, reduce non-transit vehicle usage, and revitalize the area surrounding the new Transit Center. An additional purpose identified in the 2004 FEIS/EIR is to accommodate future high speed rail. The refinements to Phase 2 Program elements area required to accommodate updated design specifications that were released by the California High-Speed Rail Authority in 2010 regarding track curvature and platform design. The other refinements concerning localized transportation and transit improvements and ventilation shaft locations reflect advanced design consideration and opportunities that were not available at the time of the 2004 FEIS/EIR.
