Alternative 2 (agency-preferred) would extend the existing F–Line from Fisherman’s Wharf to the Fort Mason Center. Included are new rail track and associated new platforms and designated stops; retrofitting of the historic State Belt Railroad tunnel; and a turnaround loop. The track extension would include a street-running segment along Beach Street, a transition zone between the street-running segment and the Fort Mason Tunnel segment. Two ‘‘turnaround segment’’ options for the terminus—North Loop (Fort Mason parking lot) and South Loop (Great Meadow)—were analyzed during a Value Analysis (VA) workshop held in August of 2010. The VA team focused on: (1) Identifying a ‘‘preferred’’ alternative for the streetcar extension turnaround; (2) identifying opportunities to improve value for the project; and (3) confirming sustainable project goals for the NPS. The VA team rated the North Loop turnaround option higher than three variations of the South Loop turnaround option. Other specific project elements include constructing streetcar track for approximately 0.85 miles, construction of 8–9-station platforms, upgrades to the existing Fort Mason Tunnel, and installation of signals, crossings, wires and poles. Comments: This notice serves to formally open the public review and comment phase for the Draft EIS. The public and interested organizations are encouraged to provide written comments on issues and concerns, refinements in alternatives, potential environmental effects and appropriate mitigation measures that would reduce potential impacts. To afford an opportunity to obtain information, a public open house will be hosted on April 20, 2011 from 7–9 p.m. in the Golden Gate Room, Building A, Fort Mason (for directions or information about public transit, please consult the project Web site or contact the Muni Railway Extension Project Manager at (415) 561–2872).
