CONSTRUCTION WORK AND OTHER UPDATES

As part of the project, sewer pipes at several intersections will be replaced and Overhead Contact System (OCS) Poles and overhead wires along the corridor.

The goal of the Potrero Avenue Roadway Improvement Project is to replace aging infrastructure and to improve safety for people walking, biking, and to help beautify Potrero Avenue. This project will also revitalize public space adjacent to the San Francisco General Hospital with pedestrian safety improvement work such as sidewalk widening, new landscaping and new street lights.

This Saturday, crews will conduct repaving work on Potrero Avenue roadway between 18th and 19th streets.

During service hours, Muni route 33 Ashbury/18th Street will operate between its northern terminal on Sacramento/Cherry streets and 17th & Kansas streets.

Weekend work is planned to take place on the following Saturdays: July 8 and July 15.

Crews will pave one block per day.  Work hours will be from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

UPDATE:  Van Ness Improvement Project

This civic improvement project will bring San Francisco’s first Bus Rapid Transit system. To maximize the benefits of construction, we will also be replacing major utilities including water, sewer and emergency firefighting water systems, repaving Van Ness Avenue, enhancing streetlights and landscaping, and installing new sidewalk lighting and rain gardens.

Construction in the median is underway. This work is necessary to provide room for construction activity and to maintain two lanes of traffic in each direction over the next three years of construction. Curbside utility work is scheduled to begin in July.

There will be no active construction work this weekend.

For more project details and the latest construction updates, please visit sfmta.com/vanness.

ONGOING:  Balboa Park Station Area Improvement Project

Balboa Park Station and the surrounding area is one of the highest ridership BART stations outside of downtown San Francisco.  There are multiple ongoing projects that aim to improve the safety and accessibility for road users and riders travelling to and from the area.  The Green Light Rail Center Track Replacement Project, located on Geneva and San Jose avenues, is one of these projects to improve system reliability with track replacements, upgrades to the overhead contact system and installation of accessible ramps and some landscape improvements.

The J-Church Rail Service remains rerouted until construction project is complete in Fall 2017. The K Ingleside Line has resumed its normal route. 

Temporary Change to:

  • Both inbound and outbound service is on San Jose Avenue

Customers traveling inbound should board at the temporary stop in the southeast corner of San Jose and Geneva avenues, across the street from the inbound stop for the M Ocean View line (Accessible boarding at Seneca Avenue).

Customers travelling outbound will be dropped off at the existing accessible M line stop on San Jose Avenue at Geneva Avenue (Accessible off-boarding at Wayside lift).

ONGOING:  Construction of Mission Bay Loop

Now until Further Notice:  The SFMTA has resumed construction on 18th, 19th and Illinois streets, the project is expected to be completed in four months.

The Mission Bay Loop is a key component for San Francisco’s T Third rail line and is critical to operating the T Third Central Subway service plan. The loop provides turn-around capabilities for the T Third Street light rail line via a connection of trackway from 3rd Street to 18th, Illinois and 19th streets, which will allow the SFMTA to operate the necessary service levels needed to support current and planned growth within the eastern portion of San Francisco.

Traffic, including travelling by bike, may be affected by the construction work.  All work areas will be clearly marked and there will be flaggers to help direct traffic.  Travelling around and through the construction area should expect minor delays.

On April 4, the contractor continued the sewer work, now working in the center of Illinois Street and opening the roadway starting at 18th and Illinois streets. General work hours are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Construction activity will not take place two hours before and two hours after SF Giants day games.

In order to conduct the work, parking on both sides including along the historical Crane Cove Park fence (east side of Illinois Street) will be removed 24 hours, 7 days a week from 18th to 19th and Illinois streets for the duration of the project (approximately until November 2017).

Traffic lanes traveling both north and south will remain open and there will be flaggers posted to help direct traffic. The northbound bike lane will be converted to a shared roadway. Expect minor delays when traveling around and through the construction area.

Local access to properties along the project site will be maintained.  Sewer work is scheduled to be completed by August 2017.
