No date for rail line reopening has yet been set, though many residents fear it 더킹카지노is too soon to be able to see the progress being made on an alternative route to connect San Francisco with downtown, such as a light rail line.

“The way to really connect San Francisco and L.A. was to build an elevated train track that went straight up and took one route out of the city, and another path into the city,” said Bill J. Lees, who was a supervisor with the Metropolitan Transportation Commission and served on a board of directors for the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission when it approved the $300 million station. “I’m not saying that, but I would bet my life on it if it can be done on time.”

The cost to build such a new rail line would be the equivalent of a new light rail line across the bay, or as much as a new Amtrak train running into San Francisco every 10 minutes, according to Lees. It would be more than double the money needed to build the first light rail line in the city, the SFO Transit Master Plan, he said.

But as far as the question of funding, “we don’t know the answers to that yet,” said Lees, “but I’m hoping to have it out and have it figured out in the next month or two.”

He said there are var우리카지노ious concerns about how the San Francisco area could afford the cost of the reopening: the city’s current debt-service payments — which make up 20 percent of its operating budget — will run out in 2044, leaving little room to fund the project and jeopardizing the project, since the costs of any other kind of funding would come from bond sales. As a result, said Lees, “I’m not saying that, but I would bet my life on it if it can be done on time.”

The plan would also come with one catch: the $400 million in construction costs will remain in the county for 25 years, instead of 20.

Even though the project is the most politically possible among the eight transportation infrajarvees.comstructure projects included in the 2016 MetroPCS annual report, which were not included in last year’s document, the transportation agency did allow the cost of the station to rise over the years from a projected $150 million in 2007 to $295 million today. The cost of the $100 million reopening was set to rise to $160 million for the 2016 project.

As such, the agency’s board — which includes the two Democratic elected officials
