San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) Central Subway

Project Overview

The Central Subway Project is a modern, efficient light-rail line that will improve public transit in San Francisco, CA. This new 1.7-mile extension of SFMTA’s T Third Line provides direct connections to major retail, sporting and cultural venues while efficiently transporting people to jobs, educational opportunities and other amenities throughout the city. The Central Subway Project is Phase 2 of the SFMTA’s Third Street Light Rail Transit Project. Phase 1 of the project constructed a 5.1-mile light-rail line along the densely populated 3rd Street corridor. It began revenue service in April 2007, restoring light-rail service to a high transit ridership area of San Francisco for the first time in 50 years. The majority of funding for the Central Subway Project was provided by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA)’s New Starts program, with a total commitment over the life of the project of $948.4 million.

Envision provided scheduling and risk assessment assignments for the FTA & SFMTA. Envision assisted the design team in developing the master schedule for the project and was involved in the constructability review of the overall project. Three risk assessments have been performed on the project with Envision running the Pertmaster schedules to determine the most realistic completion date of the project based on all of the risk factors. In addition, Envision has been part of the review team establishing the risk factors for the project and developing the risk register spreadsheet. Envision reviewed the monthly schedule submittals and supports monthly meetings when requested.
