The transportation improvements would require approval of the San Francisco Municipal Transit Authority, the California Public Utilities Commission, and Caltrans. The Draft EIR identified potentially significant, unavoidable environmental impacts on aesthetics, historic architectural resources, transportation, noise, air quality, wind and biological resources.
