How will the project assist local businesses impacted by the project?


The project’s funding guidelines allow for reimbursement of relocation expenses accrued by businesses and tenants of buildings in the immediate vicinity of the project. These are properties that are being acquired as a result of project real estate needs, as indicated in the Final Environmental Impact Report/Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIR/FEIS).

There is no funding to directly assist local businesses impacted by the project. However, the general contractor will notify local residents, property owners, business owners and interested stakeholders in the area of construction activities. The general contractor will work closely with businesses impacted by street closures and traffic congestion to ensure that they can develop alternative routes for their business operations. The project team will provide website and social media announcements to let the public know that businesses are open during construction activities.
