As summarized in Attachments 1 and 2, the Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART) has requested $653,101 in Prop K sales tax funds for construction of additional scope for the Balboa Park Station Eastside Connections project. To help improve access to this busy and tightly constrained station, the original project, which is currently under construction, consists of connecting the eastside walkway with a new deck and headhouse structure, an accessible Muni Metro J/K boarding platform, and an accessible walkway to the station’s entrance and MUNI Metro boarding area. This request would help fund $2.4 million of additional improvements in the station, including retrofitting the concourse clerestory with new glazing to replace wooden panels that currently block window openings, as well as new lighting and ceilings throughout the concourse. Requested Prop K funds would leverage Measure RR BART Bond funds approved by voters in November 2016. The total project cost including the new scope is $20.9 million, of which the Transportation Authority has allocated over $4 million in Prop K and Lifeline Transportation Program funds to date. The project will be open for use by June 2018.
