Railyard Alternatives and I-280 Boulevard Feasibility Study (RAB)

Join San Francisco Planning for a discussion on the Railyard Alternatives and I-280 Boulevard Feasibility Study (RAB)

The Railyard Alternatives and I-280 Boulevard Feasibility Study (RAB) is a multi-agency program studying transportation and land use alternatives in the most rapidly growing areas of the City: South of Market, Mission Bay, and Showplace Square/Lower Potrero Hill.

In anticipation of the Downtown Rail Extension (DTX), the electrification of Caltrain, and High-Speed Rail, the City is studying how best to coordinate these projects in a unified vision for the area rather than building each project independently.

The first phase of the RAB has prepared conceptual design alternatives for four different project components, in addition to a study of overall land use considerations and opportunities for placemaking:

  1. Make I-280 a Boulevard
  2. Value Engineer the Proposed Downtown Rail Extension (DTX) alignment
  3. Create a Loop Track/Extension to the East Bay to Enhance Operational Capacity at the Transbay Transit Center
  4. Reconfigure, Relocate, or Substantially Reduce the 4th and King Railyard
  5. Create Placemaking, Neighborhood Connectivity, Employment and Transit Oriented Development Opportunities

Join San Francisco Planning to learn about findings from the first phase of this study and opportunities to participate as we work toward managing growth and improving neighborhood connectivity.
