1 $1.91 million in OBAG funds were swapped with SFMTA local revenue bond funds because the OBAG funds were unavailable when needed.  In October 2015, the Transportation Authority Board reprogrammed the OBAG funds to SFPW's Lombard Street US-101 Corridor Improvement via 2016 Regional Transportation Improvement Program, as requested by SFMTA and SFPW 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.

4 On June 28, 2016, the Transportation Authority Board approved SFPW's request to reprogram additional $51,215 from the completed ER Taylor SR2S to Second Street to cover the cost of the pedestrian lighting, which has been added per the community's request.
