Item 11: SFMTA’s 20-year Capital Plan
Adopting the SFMTA’s 20-year Capital Plan, which includes a list of capital needs linked to the agency’s Strategic Plan for projects to be funded through the Capital Improvement Program.
The board approved the SFMTA’s 20-Year Capital Plan, a catalogue of the infrastructure projects (and their costs) that we expect our agency will need to invest in over the next 20 years. This plan is an initial “wish list” of projects that we update every two years to help shape our more detailed, near-term capital plans. These are developed as a clearer picture of our financial constraints emerges year-to-year.
The early outlook includes an estimated $21.9 billion (in 2017 dollars) in infrastructure projects that we predict will be needed by 2037. The list includes everything from protected bike lanes, upgraded traffic signals and curb improvements for safer streets, to new Muni buses, trains and the facilities needed to store and maintain them, to new communications infrastructure.
