This Friday: Ocean Ave. to See One-Month Traffic and Muni Changes at Balboa Park Station

Wednesday, November 9, 2016

Starting this Friday, Ocean Avenue will see traffic detours and Muni re-routes for the 29 Sunset and 49 Van Ness/Mission near the Balboa Park BART/Muni Station.

These changes, expected to last one month, will be needed for the final phase of the Balboa Park Station Area and Plaza Improvements project, which will make the station safer and more accessible and help ensure reliable Muni service.

The construction, focused in the area around Ocean Avenue and Highway 280, will bring improvements to traffic signals and curb ramps, lighting for pedestrians, restored pavement and needed track replacement.

Traffic Detours on Eastbound Ocean Avenue

Eastbound Ocean Avenue will be closed to vehicle traffic between Geneva and San Jose avenues. Westbound Ocean will remain open.

The northbound Highway 280 on-ramp on Ocean will be closed on weekends, and drivers will be detoured to the on-ramp on Geneva. All on-ramps will remain open on weekdays.

To provide local vehicle access, Howth Street, between Geneva and Ocean avenues, will be temporarily converted from a one-way street to a two-way street.

Here’s an overview of the traffic changes:
