The DNA study effort was undertaken as a collaborative effort between RT and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), with support from the City of Sacramento, the County of Sacramento, Sacramento International Airport, Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG) and other local agencies. Development of the Alternatives Analysis and Program EIR was coordinated by RT staff supported by a broad team of consulting firms. Current preliminary design efforts and environmental studies for MOS-1 from downtown Sacramento to Richards Boulevard are also being conducted by RT in conjunction with a team of qualified consultants.
A Technical Review Panel (TRP) and a Citizen's Review Panel (CRP) were formed during the study period to discuss issues in the DNA corridor and provide input on planning activities and project options. The TRP, which consisted of city, county, state, and federal staff from agencies with jurisdiction in the DNA corridor, provided feedback to RT and the consultant team on technical issues in the corridor. Meanwhile, the CRP provided an opportunity for residents, business leaders, developers and environmental and community groups to contribute to the development of plans in the corridor.
Representatives from both the TRP and CRP will continue to be engaged throughout the phased implementation of the DNA line.
