Phase One of Islais Creek Motor Coach Facility Project to Reach Substantial Completion
Dear Neighbor/Business Merchant/Muni Customer:
The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA), which oversees transportation in the city, is pleased to announce that after 24 months of construction, Phase One of the Islais Creek Motor Coach Facility Project will reach substantial completion on March 7, 2013. As we reach this important milestone, the SFMTA would like to express its thanks for your patience and support as we work to improve your Muni system.
After March 7, the contractor will spend approximately three months conducting finishing work and completing the certification process required before the facility can become operational.
Phase One achievements include:
Phase Two of the project, construction of a 64,000 square-foot operations and maintenance facility, is expected to break ground in spring 2014.
Development of the Islais Creek property will provide Muni vehicles convenient access to major traffic arteries with its proximity to 3rd Street, Highway 101 and Interstate 280. This will allow Muni vehicles to get to and from designated service routes efficiently and without having to use neighborhood streets. It will ultimately allow for an expanded hybrid motor coach fleet that will better serve the residents of San Francisco in both an economical and environmentally-friendly way.
The SFMTA is constructing a new Muni motor coach facility on City-owned land at 1301 Cesar Chavez Street. The new facility will include parking, fueling, maintenance and vehicle washing facilities.
As part of the project, the SFMTA will create an edge treatment on the Islais Creek shoreline that allows for public access and reflects the historical, industrial and port uses along the San Francisco Bay. The area of public access will include amenities such as public art, a small pedestrian bridge and a walkway that circles the new facility. The edge treatment will also foster local wetlands to allow colonization by native plant and animal life. The work will be done in cooperation with the Bay Conservation and Development Commission, San Francisco Arts Commission and Friends of Islais Creek.
