Class 2 consists of replacement or reconstruction of existing structures and facilities where the new structure will be located on the same site as the structure replaced and will have substantially the same purpose and capacity as the structure replaced. The proposed project would result in the replacement of outdated traction power substation equipment Proposed improvements to MTW would require rehabilitation of the existing facility within the existing footprint The existing equipment would be removed, and new equipment would be lowered via the existing hatches leading to the substation from west level. Coordination with the Port of San Francisco is necessary to obtain access for staging and construction. The new and replacement equipment would have the same purpose as the existing traction power substation and would be capable of supporting increased tr din lengths and more frequent peak period services
