The contract to study the feasibility and alternatives for redeveloping San Francisco’s 20-acre Caltrain Depot at 4th and King Streets, connecting rail to the Transbay Center (and possibly the East Bay), and reconfiguring the terminus of I-280 in the city is slated to start this month.
The first phase of the project (Visioning, Concept Development and Feasibility Assessment) will take between six and nine months and phase two (Development of Alternatives and Refinement) will take another 12 to 15 months. Project deliverables are expected in early 2016.
Follow-on phases of the Railyard Redevelopment and I-280 Boulevard project, assuming it’s deemed feasible, include the selection of a Preferred Alternative (12-18 months) and the securing of Environmental Clearances, for which 18 months to 4 years have been budgeted.
Implementation could follow sometime after 2020, “as money and priorities allow.”
