Release date: July 5, 2012
*** Press Release ***
The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA), which manages transportation in the city, including the Municipal Railway (Muni), today reminds customers and San Francisco residents and visitors of the continuation of track improvement work on the Muni Metro system, starting tomorrow. Construction for the Church & Duboce Track and Street Improvement Project and the Carl Street Rail Replacement Project will require bus shuttle substitution on the N Judah Line, disruption to the J Church Line, reroutes of the 22 Fillmore and N Owl and traffic detours the weekend of July 6 as well as three additional weekends this summer. These projects are essential to keeping Muni in a state of good repair and will provide pedestrian and street improvements.
The construction hours will be from 8 p.m., Friday to 5 a.m., Monday on each weekend. Muni service adjustments and traffic detours will need to start an hour earlier at 7 p.m. on Friday and will continue through construction hours. As with the previous construction weekends for these projects, which began in February, the construction dates have been coordinated between both the Church & Duboce and Carl Street projects to minimize inconvenience to residents, businesses, Muni customers, motorists and bicyclists.
During the July 6 weekend and upcoming construction weekends, the N Line will be shut down with substitute service provided by bus shuttles from Ocean Beach to Church Street. No N Line service will be operated in the Metro subway; however, supplemental rail service will be in place between Castro Station and the Caltrain Station at 4th and King streets. The J Church Line will operate between the Balboa Park Station and Market Street. J Line customers will need to transfer between the Church Street Metro Station and the Church Street stop between Market and 15th streets.
Muni Service Impacts
N Judah Bus Shuttles
SFMTA Ambassadors will be in the area to provide information and to assist customers at transfer points.
The July 6 weekend work on the Church & Duboce project will include track work on Church Street between Reservoir and 14th streets and the reconstruction of the boarding island on Church at 14th Street. The Carl Street project will include track replacement on Carl Street between Willard and Stanyan streets, including demolition. In addition, a track crossover will be replaced on Judah Street at the intersections of 10th and 14th avenues. The Switch Replacement Project is part of regular rail maintenance by Muni’s Maintenance of Way personnel. It will ensure a safer, more reliable transportation network by replacing worn infrastructure and keeping Muni in a state of good repair. This project is part of an upgrade of the existing track work along the L Taraval, N Judah and J Church lines.
Future J and N Line Shutdowns
The Church & Duboce Track and Street Improvement Project and the Carl Street Rail Replacement Project will require multiple partial rail service shutdowns or disruptions on the J Church and N Judah Muni lines and reroutes of local Muni bus service during the construction that will be completed in 2013.
The three following additional weekend shutdowns will take place this summer over the following weekends:
