Phase 1 Parking and Traffic Impacts:

TICD construction activities along Yerba Buena Island Macalla Road, Treasure Island Road and around Treasure Island's southern and western waterfronts are now underway, resulting in the closure and relocation of MUNI 25 bus stops, the closure of public parking areas, the closure of certain on-Island streets and changes in traffic circulation on Yerba Buena Island and Treasure Island.  Motorists, pedestrians, cyclists and MUNI-25 riders should expect an increase in construction related vehicles and traffic on-Island during regular weekday, daytime work hours.

Public Oversight of Demolition Activities

All Land Use Development proposals by Developers are first reviewed for environmental impacts under the requirements of the state California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The environmental review conducted in accordance with CEQA identifies mitigation measures to reduce significant environmental effects. Prior to approval of a project, TIDA adopted feasible mitigation measures identified in the environmental document.  TICD is required to follow the mitigation measures adopted by TIDA such as requiring the best available technology for heavy vehicle emissions control.

For larger projects and those with sensitive receptors within 1000 feet, TICD must submit a Dust Control Plan for San Francisco Department of Public Health (DPH) approval to comply with Article 22B of the Health Code. This approved Dust Control Plan is required prior to TICD, or their contractors, receiving a permit to demolish or build from the San Francisco Department of Building Inspection (DBI). When asbestos-containing building materials will be disturbed, the Developer also has requirements imposed by the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD), the region’s air quality protection agency.

DBI will be sending a field inspector to the Yerba Buena Island and Treasure Island demolition sites regularly to observe that dust control practices are preventing visible dust. DPH has limited inspection resources, but does send inspectors to the site regularly to also observe that dust control practices are effectively preventing visible dust.
