This Weekend: 19th Ave. Closure, Bastille Day and Sunday Streets in the Mission
M Ocean View Track Replacement - 19th Avenue Closure
The M Ocean View Track Replacement Project will replace the existing rails, install a new traffic signal, and implement transit signal priority at the intersection of 19th Avenue and Rossmoor Drive. This project will require a full shutdown of northbound 19th Avenue from Friday, July 13 at 10 PM until Monday, July 16 at 5 AM. Southbound traffic will not be affected. As a result, the M Ocean View shuttle bus and 28 19th Avenue routes will have an inbound reroute for the duration of the shutdown while the 91 OWL Route will have an outbound reroute.

Bastille Day Festival
Saturday, 10 AM to 7 PM
Justin Herman Plaza
The Storming of The Bastille on July 14, 1789 by French revolutionaries was the flashpoint of the French Revolution and has been celebrated in more or less its current fashion since 1878. Since 1880, San Francisco has held its own Bastille Day celebration and this year --the 140th year of the event-- will be no different. This free event organized under the patronage of the Consul General of France in San Francisco is open to all and is a day to enjoy a plethora of French establishments, food, wine and beer booths, a vintage car show, tours of the city's French Quarter and much more.

The sunny weather of the Mission will provide an idyllic setting for this month's edition of Sunday Streets. The car-free fun of the Mission will extend down Valencia Street from Duboce Avenue to 26th Street, transforming it into an open community space for all to enjoy. Patrons are invited to walk, bike and roll along Valencia while checking out institutions like The Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts and Poder!, or neighborhood staples like Dog Eared Books and taqueria Puerto Alegere. There will be tons of activities and local vendors to explore this Sunday in the Mission, so be sure to stop by -- just remember to leave your car at home!
