Sunset Tunnel, Super Bowl City Set-up, and the Walk for Life This Weekend

Wednesday, January 20, 2016

Construction Alerts and Reminder:

After six months of early subway shutdowns for system upgrades, the Muni Metro subway will resume late night operating hours and train service this Saturday as upgrade work concludes on Friday. So, please don’t look for the Metro bus shuttles starting Saturday night – go ahead and enter the station as you would have six months ago.  

Until then…

The Muni Metro subway will continue to close early at 9:30pm for system upgrades. Metro bus shuttles will operate between St. Francis Circle and Market and Spears streets from 9 p.m. to 1:30 a.m.

Sunset Tunnel construction work will resume this weekend beginning at 2 a.m. on Saturday and will run until 3:30 a.m., Monday. During tunnel work, bus shuttles will provide N Judah Line service between Duboce Avenue and Church Street and Ocean Beach.

Super Bowl 50:

Are you ready for some football? Just a little over two weeks until the big game, but starting this Saturday street closures in the downtown area go into effect as crews begin the set-up for Super Bowl City and the NFL Experience. For details on Muni impacts and information on how to get around the affected area, please re-visit our January 14 blog post.

The Walk For Life
Saturday, 1:30 p.m.

Due to street closures in the downtown area, pedestrian and vehicle traffic congestion on surrounding streets may be heavy. Plan ahead and utilize alternative routes to avoid delays.
