511: Paint Crew to Extend Transit Only Lanes on Market Street 12 hours More...

The extension of the transit-only lanes on Market Street begins this weekend, Friday, July 31, as part of the Safer Market Street project. View factsheet

The existing transit-only lanes on Market Street will be extended to 3rd Street in both directions improving safety conditions and transit efficiency along the corridor.

Construction work will take place Friday to Sunday between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m., with few exceptions. Construction will continue into December, and will only be on weekends that do not coincide with a holiday or special event. The extensions of the transit-only lanes are scheduled to be complete by January 2016. 

The paint crews will begin construction this weekend colorizing the westbound lane on Market Street between 7th and 8th streets, Friday, July 31, to Sunday, August 2. 

During this time between 7th and 8th streets:

  • No traffic will be allowed on the center track lanes 
  • Local access will be permitted in the curbside lane both east and westbound
  • Muni buses will use curbside stops
    • Westbound buses will stop at the curbside 19 and 21 stop
    • Eastbound buses will stop at the curbside 7 and 7R stop
  • Loading zones will not be available
