                 Regional Measure 1 Toll Bridge Capital Improvement Program

A. Applicant:

   State of California, Department of Transportation (Caltrans), District 4

B. Project Description:

   New Benicia-Martinez Bridge - Construct a new span parallel to the existing Benicia-
   Martinez Bridge.

C. Action Requested:

   Refer BATA Resolution No.40, Revised, to the Authority to allocate $6.45 million in toll
   funds to the New Benicia-Martinez Bridge Project for environmental mitigation from the
   impacts of pile driving operations.

D. Discussion:

   New Benicia-Martinez Bridge Project

   The new bridge will be constructed just east of and parallel to the existing Benicia-Martinez
   Bridge. This project will expand traffic capacity of the bridge by 50 percent, add a new
   pedestrian/bicycle pathway, and will expand the toll plaza by eight lanes, to a total of 17. All
   major construction contracts for the project are now underway.

   Construction of the bridge has been delayed due to fish being killed by the high sound levels
   generated by the pile driving operations. Since early 2003, pile driving has resumed utilizing
   an innovative air bubble curtain noise containment system developed by Caltrans under a
   revised Biological Opinion (BO) permit between Caltrans and regulatory agencies. The BO
   permit governs work on the project and requires Caltrans to deposit $6.45 million into an
   escrow account that will fund environmental mitigations to offset the impact of the pile
   driving related injuries to protected fish species.

   The $6.45 million request is part of the overall cost increase that Caltrans has forecasted for
   the project due to the delayed pile driving, difficulties in the installation of rock sockets,
   redesigns for reinforcement conflicts for the superstructure and additional support costs. This
   request will be funded from the $36.6 million Project Contingency available for the project.

   Caltrans and Bechtel are currently reviewing the estimates and assumptions for the total cost
   overruns for the project. We expect to report those findings to and request a budget
   adjustment for the Benicia-Martinez Bridge project in October 2003.

   Table 1 shows the current project budget and allocations for the project.

A. Applicant:

   State of California, Department of Transportation (Caltrans), District 4

B. Project Descriptions:

          Interstate 880/State Route 92 Interchange Reconstruction Project – To reconstruct the
           I-880/SR-92 Interchange in the City of Hayward and Alameda County.

          San Mateo-Hayward Bridge Widening Project – To widen the existing San Mateo-
           Hayward Bridge to six lanes in each direction in Alameda and San Mateo counties.

C. Action Requested:

   Refer BATA Resolution No.44, Revised, to the Authority to allocate $9.6 million in toll
   funds to the I-880/SR-92 Interchange Reconstruction Project for capital right-of-way
   purposes and $750,000 in toll funds to the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge Widening Project for
   public access improvement purposes.

D. Discussion:

   Interstate 880/State Route 92 Interchange Reconstruction Project

   As part of an effort to improve traffic flow and to relieve congestion in the San Mateo-
   Hayward Bridge corridor, RM1 identified the need to improve the I-880/SR-92 interchange.
   The preferred alternative would reconstruct the existing, outdated cloverleaf interchange with
   one featuring direct connectors between the freeways. This project will improve traffic safety
   and operations by eliminating the weaving action now required of drivers moving from one
   freeway to another.

   The project is still in environmental review. The Final Environmental Impact
   Statement/Report (FEIS/R) has been prepared and is now awaiting final approval from the
   Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). Caltrans is anticipating construction to begin in
   mid-2005 and be completed in mid-2009.

   Currently, Caltrans is requesting an allocation of $9.6 million in toll funds for capital right-
   of-way activities. At present, it is estimated that 12 full and 13 partial parcels, as well as 55
   temporary and permanent easements, will need to be acquired to provide adequate right-of-

   way for the project. The right-of-way negotiation and acquisition process must be completed
   prior to starting the project construction. Caltrans has estimated that the required right-of-way
   acquisition will cost a total of approximately $9.8 million. The $9.6 million in toll funds
   subject to this request plus $200,000 in prior BATA allocations made to the project will fund
   the estimated right-of-way project costs.

   Originally, the Alameda County Transportation Authority (ACTA) was to fund the $9.6
   million of the capital right-of-way costs for the project from its Measure B sales tax funds.
   However, due to the funding shortage in the State Highway Account, ACTA has requested
   that BATA fund the capital right-of-way activities with $9.6 million in toll funds and ACTA
   will apply the $9.6 million in Measure B funds to the capital construction portion of the
   project. According to ACTA staff, this fund swap will allow ACTA to use its Measure B
   funds for other projects that have state funding in jeopardy. ACTA has begun to work with
   Caltrans to develop a cooperative agreement between the agencies, which will allow for the
   Measure B funding to be transferred to Caltrans for the capital construction portion of the
   project.

   Table 1 shows the current project budget and allocations for the project.

    San Mateo-Hayward Bridge Widening Project

   In accordance with the permitting for the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge Widening project,
   which was completed earlier this year, Caltrans is required to provide enhanced public access
   through the bridge corridor. Caltrans is requesting an allocation of $750,000 in budgeted toll
   funds for the continued implementation of a bicycle shuttle across the bridge for the next
   three years and for the completion of other bicycle and pedestrian access improvements in the
   vicinity of the bridge approaches.

   Table 2 shows the current project budget and allocations for the project.

Since opening the new Alfred Zampa Memorial Bridge to traffic in November 2003, Caltrans and its
contractors have been completing the finishing touches on the project. On the main span of the
bridge, the contractor is completing painting of the steel deck sections and the electrical wiring for
the seismic monitoring system and the call box system. On the south approach and Crockett
Interchange, the contractor is completing the new off-ramps from Interstate 80 into the town of
Crockett, which includes the off-ramp for the new bicycle/pedestrian pathway on the western edge of
the new bridge. The contractor is forecasting that the new ramps will be completed and opened to
traffic in early April.

Caltrans is requesting a supplemental allocation of $6 million to cover a number of contract change
orders and claims experienced on the new bridge contract, as follows:

     Additional Bridge Security Measures                                                $175,000
     Modifications to the Bridge Maintenance Traveler System                             495,000
     Changes to the Paint and Pavement Specifications and Applications                 1,200,000
     Escalation, Delay, and Other Costs                                                3,500,000
     Other Minor Change Orders                                                           630,000
                                                                   Total              $6,000,000

BATA and Bechtel staffs have met with Caltrans engineers to discuss and review the changes and
claims, and have found them to be reasonable and necessary for the project. This supplemental
allocation can be funded from existing project contingencies. As a result of this request, the Project
Staff Evaluation - BATA Res. No. 44, Revised                                      September 10, 2003

Contingency for the Carquinez Bridge project will be reduced from $11.6 to $5.6 million. See
attached – Table 1.

Caltrans is currently negotiating additional claims and change orders with its contractors on the
project and is completing the design for the demolition of the 1927 span. Demolition will not begin
until after the approach to the 1958 bridge is rehabilitated. During the rehabilitation, eastbound I-80
traffic will be detoured onto the 1927 bridge to facilitate the work and minimize impacts to the
traveling public. Caltrans is expecting to advertise the demolition contract by late 2004 and complete
the work in 2006. Based on the cost review completed for the project by Bechtel, the resolution of
the outstanding claims and the demolition project will likely exceed the total $479 million currently
budgeted for the project and require a budget amendment. We will continue to track these costs and
report to the Committee any further budget adjustments.

approval of supplemental allocations of toll funds totaling $6.0 million for change orders and claims
on the Carquinez Bridge project.
