go thank you for your clarification i'll agree with how colleagues we'll be looking for the new specification in the rfp and i but the prop k we've been moving forward with the estimation. >> that's important feedback. >> landlord/tenant any other comments from the commissioners. >> supervisor yee. >> not on the same item but on the traffic comment piece so i don't know if we are finished with the bicycle if you're finished i'll ask the question. >> so i looked at the projects that are being completed and so on and so forth and thank you there's it's pretty spread e sprayed out district 7 has some but i looked at the list of all the things that are pending
11:31 pm
supposedly and that trargd for me what it doesn't tell me where is it in the priority and how long have people been waiting is this ongoing for 10 years it doesn't say anything my question is there a way to indicate the priority and maybe dates of what those things might happen because i could look at the list and one the constituents will contact me and say are we ever going to do look at this issue and oh not study is pending but someone two supervisors ago said it was pending 20 years ago and
11:32 pm
on. >> we can provide this particular allocation the sustainable streets and the mta have worked to transformed the program and this has to do with the process where we did the traffic calming in particular areas the issue you're getting at supervisor yee that we will develop a plan and not know how to fund all the traffic calming or the resources that everything was asking for it will lag for five or six years and the mta was in the process of implementing the process and small business didn't want it so our commitment to use our revenue bond funds to go through a backlog 3 is an allocation for all the traffic cadging improvements in the ear plans and systemically work to get them done i don't want to say
11:33 pm
completely but we program fund outreach the next 3 fiscal years and total of $6 million to get completed most of the things that were prioritized we're hoping to get most of those done in the next 3 fiscal years. >> we share the priority. >> we have the level 1, 2, 3 improvements o improvements we'll definitely provide that again and have the data of the years of the traffic data. >> i would appreciate that. >> we'll work with the authorities. >> thank you. >> thank you very much any other questions from commissioners? all right. i guess seeing none, we'll go to public comment on item 5 i have two speaker cards (calling names) >> anyone else please line up. >> i'm ooifshg with the brought to my attention coalition i wanted to touch a little bit
11:34 pm
about the questions you have and appreciate all the comments and great suggests and ideas just to touch this map we provided was only the 2014 location a 3 year contract i can update this and it didn't indicate when there's more than one class so that means there are 6 classes they're might be 6 in supervisor yee's district. >> i think the locations show a lot of area being served people tend to consultant along routes when they're on their way home we're going classes along the way i assure you that people say i live in the marina how do i get to work we're able to capture a lot of people i'll say that i can assure you people are from all over the
11:35 pm
city we want to get the information to the people and in addition a large portion of the classes are mostly women we're 2/3rd's of the classes are women and largely asian-american women to do variety of other things we're capturing a lot of community so i wanted to touch we reach around 48 hundred people a year in the past year we've caught over one thousand adults and youth and we reach over one thousand people in one adults and youths there these are critical programs for vision zero and the education is part of the vision zero and continuing to support this i appreciate you kind of all saying you agree to move forward and we're interested in what the future rfp will look like and thank you for the feedback we have matt that works with the
11:36 pm
youth to talk about that i have some of the outreach in the languages. >> thank you very much. >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> morning i'm matthew dove representing the ymca of san francisco i run the ymca for the presidio ymca and i have so much to say in so little time i want to let you know about cost friend of mineness the youth bicycle programs through the contract there middle schools and high schools are exposing in terms of popularity and reach this year we're going to reach a minimum of 9 hundred students across the city but this is just the students we are going to be in front of my
11:37 pm
instructors from the judge we work with several instructors and many of those are working out of schools they have fleets and bicycles to instruct there are many schools that are teaching their students working with us not currently working directly with us right now 7 schools that have their own fleet of bikes and a purchase at ucla for other bikes the schools we go to we work in barney or partnering with the schools we have high frequently introduced lunches and instructors with facilities that host a facility program in the future we had a pe pb once in the summer and spring the
11:38 pm
instructors that are interested in starting the program can come and join us and learn more i think we circulated about 50 to $60 the demand is so high we're geary up for more demand it will go down and we're excited to do that thank you very much any public comment on item 5 all right. seeing none, public comment is closed colleagues more comments or questions. >> supervisor christensen. >> i had a question the program weather heard described by the y what's the relationship of that program to the one that is extended? >> we're a subcontractors to the bicycle coalition. >> thank you. i'm very happy with the rest of the requests that have come in with the prop
11:39 pm
k allocation requests and excited about the great highway improvements so with that colleagues, we have a motion to approve item 5 okay. all right. and same house, same call? ? without objection and this item is passed item 6 >> recommended adopting the coordinator management report this is an action item. >> we have rachel here today. >> good morning commissioners rachel principle center the 2013 san francisco transportation plan develops a freeway corridor management strategy for san francisco in addition to the performance issues that many people experience on the 8081 the san francisco transportation plan
11:40 pm
projects continued growth and demand for the corridors about 2 hundred thousand new jobs being planned for san francisco between now and 2040 to travel downtown and the eastern part of the city and the peninsula would be a bus load of folks every minute during the peak hour the challenge to how to accommodate that demand meeting the 09 goals in terms of green house gas emissions and reduction and liveability and so on and so forth that this graphic shows information about the growth in jobs in this case but it is part of the demand picture the 15 birth cities are shown here 70 percent of the growth of jobs that's been
11:41 pm
projected in the cities is along the u.s. 101 corridor. >> caltrain awarded a state grant to do the freeway corridor management study last year and we're approaching this in two phases the first phase is today the decision shrewd that be a performance based analysis of potential strategies for managing our freeway corridors will recommend a set of strategies and implementation plan for the mid 7, 8, 9 horizon and with the first phase we've done homework setting up the technical analysis there's a lot of freeway corridor management work going on around the peninsula so understanding the setting that
11:42 pm
san francisco is working in and i understanding the goals and objectives we should try to chief with the corridor management phase 2 will precede the milestones of today the technical analysis we'll study the quantitative effects and recommend i wanted to share a map of some of the freeway management work that is underway along the peninsula this picture focuses on 101 and not on the east bay the valley transportation authority opened the first express lanes in 2012 and planning to expand the network including on to 101 to convert the vehicle or h o v
11:43 pm
lanes into express lanes san mateo county is planning to install an h o v lane on u.s. 101 and other for the that helps to compliment that management strategy for instance, along el camino along the peninsula the cities of san mateo and counties are adapting the signal timing and technologies to help manage the particularly material 2, 3, 4 inclination to the freeways then at the region and state levels just wants are planned m t c metropolitan commission is updating their freeway management strategy for the fridays and the implementation plan for lane management strategy you'll talk about more
11:44 pm
in a minute and caltrain it planning to prepare a statewide managed master plan to integrate the plans with this san francisco study we're timing it such we can inform those other effort and be informed to make sure that san francisco prospective is brought into the other efforts this is a framework of goals and objectives we're proposed to guide the freeway corridor management starting with the 4 goals from the san francisco transportation plan regarding mobility and the types of transportation performance liveability and safety and emissions reduction and vial health and adding the matter of coordination and making sure that san francisco prospective is performing the others efforts
11:45 pm
we work with our partners up and down the peninsula to put together a stream for 101 and 80 that is complimentary and finally making sure that we understand and can improve the conditions on surface streets we know that many people use particularly aerials as alternatives to 101 when it gets congested so improving safety as well as transportation performance on those roads is something that will need to consider with any analysis of the freeway corridor so there wish 4 categories of the types of strategies that we are part of the picture here the first two i think san francisco is doing already but this study identifies where we need to do
11:46 pm
more in the areas of accommodating the demand on transit so caltrain electrification and downtown estimation helps but not all of it travel demand our strategy to switch times of day or employer based incentives for folks to carpool or take another mode to work like guaranteed ride home those help the demands and areas where san francisco is working so the last two areas are things types of strategies where san francisco we're proposing to take a deeper dive and where san francisco is not already active in areas of operation technologies we think that realtime information using
11:47 pm
signal technology or for instance to help manage demand on streets and freeways and finally lane management so different ways of prioritizing freeway space those two later categories are the categories we're focusing on in the study i'll give a couple of example of some of the operational technologies those is an example of using realtime information from san mateo together with caltrain and 2009 and caltrans did a pilot at the showed travel time for freeways on those changeable method times it helped with the caltrain and also the freeways
11:48 pm
another thing to highlight is mta for instance, recently opened a transportation management center tnc with caltrain and caltrans to manager realtime part of the freeway corridor management passageway package ramp meeting is something that caltrain is implementing throughout in many places throughout the bayer but not in san francisco what this strategy side is helps to meter little number of vehicles into the freeways to improve performances we know that is something that caltrans would like us to look at it will be something to look at some of big strategies that will potentially do the most to help
11:49 pm
improve the performs and accommodate performs high occupancy or hoov lanes are more transit and vehicle lanes with two or three or more people can use and express lanes that allow a single occupancy such as the ones in santa clara and the east bay they used to have an hoov lane downtown and on 6th street until the loma prieta earthquake and after that the closer that happened that in 1989 it was turned back into a mixed slow lane so with this stem today is for us to share the background information for the goals and objectives frashths and the
11:50 pm
focus areas for the next phase of the technical analysis on the operation strategies we are working with folks - there's a whole set of folks with the municipal transportation agency would assist and participate in the study focusing on the interface between local streets and the freeway ramps we're participating in other forums that are at the regional and state level around freeway management to make sure that san francisco prospective can be heard and also that the strategies we identify are compatible with and work together with the strategies that the jurisdictions are recommending
11:51 pm
- this is a schedule showing the timeframe for the technical analysis we want to make sure that 9 analysis is identified into the management implementation plan and the regional plan so certainly less than a 13 month study effort. >> thank you i'll be happy to answer any questions. >> i think your presentation presentation is wonderful and it's important to see our prospective and goals into the regional network supervisor christensen. >> morning so great idea what are we're going to do with the big freeways a couple of things comments one certainly the impact of backs up on the city is enormous my form job in studio city with the traffic but i think the cuing and the way
11:52 pm
the intersections radio handled and those backs up are handled perhaps that's covered in our particularly adversarial's but that is certainly something i'm sure you'll be looking at district 3 my district this idea of transit alternatives is compelling when it applies to regional travelers in my district fisherman's wharf generating three or four million trips the financial district that generates that or more and currently not really having ground transportation that provides an alternative for regional travelers i'm absolutely sure you'll be looking where are those people going this is not only an issue from a freeway go prospective how to get from a to b but a choice when i get into the city
11:53 pm
i was intrigued p with a city chicago does this from getting to o'hare from car it's compelling it is from rush however, the fact there are no alternatives for people to going get into district 3 once they're in the city by transit is an impact of the city that is important the subway extension for example, is a great way to excusable people to take transit from outlying areas to try to get where they're going that's a plug for including that question because that's a big part of this but great. >> thank you. >> thank you very much any other questions i think those are all very good
11:54 pm
comments supervisor christensen so supervisor katie tang. >> good morning. i wanted to ask we're very grateful to the kevin who represents a portion of its district and the committee saw a regional collaboration on the corridor not only on the caltrain project because, of course travelers view this is as a corridor with multiple options that works collaboratively with the modes of transportation so we have an endorsement for a motion of support so a heads-up and we're working closely with mr. mullins staff and the ftc is working
11:55 pm
closely. >> thank you seeing no other questions or comments any public comment? >> motion to approve that same house, same call? woblgs the item is approved item 7. >> item 7 major project update an informational item. >> good morning, commissioners i'm a project management consultant this is on page 51 of our package central subway a refresher is the second phase of the third street project that extends the
11:56 pm
at any rate to chinatown that will stop on - go underground in a portal and proceeded to the underground stations at yerba buena union square and chinatown i'm happy to report the restraining order project is within budget and the completion indicates the project is 50 percent complete right now and within budget as of january 31st the expenditures are $447 million funding plan for the central subway the plan is all the funding sources have been identified and most of the funding has been allocated already with the expectation of
11:57 pm
two one the refresh my memory of the federal funds that even though is that i have been approved and committed it has to be approved by congress and second the state improvement regular improvements funds they have about $75 million it will probably not be on time that's something that staff is working on for looking for funding to replace that. >> just really quick circo you explain in terms of the funds for the state what are some of the sources ore staff is looking at. >> at this time our staff in the finance group will help with that i'm more on the engineering side of the project and i can get you that
11:58 pm
information. >> thank you. >> the project is on schedule also in april is going to reach a major milestone that is the substantial completion of the tunnel contract that tunnel contract is 2 hundred plus million dollars is getting completed within budget and on schedule with the 2010 that was approved by this body. >> the project has been verified in 4 contracts of which are completed and as we mentioned this special completion in april that leaves the work to be focused on the last and final contracted $830 million is the largest award by the city that contract
11:59 pm
is right now like 26.8 percent completed here we have a picture of the chinatown head house station where the perimeter a walls for the station have been completed and now getting ready for excavation and union square the perimeter walls for the station have been completed and also all the pile installation and see here's where the funding the moscone station excavation is underway last but not least let's not forget the surface station where caltrain is working on the
12:00 am
foundation piles central subway as a fte in the program that has contract specific goals from 6 to thirty percent those goals are based on the type of works to be performed and the ability of the krarthsd to perform the work the tunneling contract only had a 6 percent goal because there isn't any dbes to do the tunneling work now as of the challenges he mentioned earlier we need to continue with the advocacy for the new funds they've been coming in a timely number and quantities, however, because they require congressional approval
