Planned Alert

The following Van Ness Improvement Project construction forecast is subject to change due to weather or unforeseen conditions. For more project details, please visit sfmta.com/vanness.

Work is planned over the next month to develop work zones for the upcoming utility work. This work will create two construction zones: one southbound on Van Ness Avenue from Sutter to McAllister streets, and another northbound from Jackson to Lombard streets. These work areas will be approximately five feet from the building line to approximately the center of the roadway.

To make space for these construction zones, traffic lanes will shift in late, parking will be temporarily removed, blue curb parking for people with disabilities and loading zones will be temporarily relocated, sidewalk widths will be reduced and bus stops will be reconfigured. Project staff is reaching out directly to businesses and residents on blocks that are impacted by these changes.

Those who travel in and through the area are advised to take alternate routes and plan for delays.

Monday, August 14, through Friday, August 18: Traffic control maintenance and construction site preparation will be conducted on Van Ness between Lombard and Mission Streets. Existing lane striping will be removed in the median between Grove and Bush streets and between Washington and Lombard streets. Trenching and installation of duct banks for powering buses will be done between Grove to McAllister streets.

Between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. existing lane striping will be removed and new lanes will be marked between Grove and Bush streets and between Washington and Lombard streets. Note: Neighbors are advised to anticipate construction-related noise as crews work diligently to complete this necessary night work.
