1 Because the OBAG funds were unavailable when needed, $1.91 million in OBAG funds from Chinatown Broadway Street Design were swapped with SFMTA local revenue bond funds and later reprogrammed to SFPW's Lombard Street US-101 Corridor through Resolution 16-19.

2 In order to minimize risk of losing federal funds due to project delays, in February 2015, the Transportation Authority Board reprogrammed $10,227,540 in OBAG funds from SFMTA's Masonic Avenue project to the LRV Procurement project, with the condition that SFMTA continue to follow OBAG reporting requirements for the Masonic Avenue project. See the Plans and Programs Committee memo (February 3, 2015) and Resolution 15-42 for more detail.
