NEW: Safer Taylor Street Quick Build

Safety improvements include:

  • Lane reduction and new turn lanes
  • Wider loading and parking areas
  • Painted safety zones
  • More walking time to cross intersections
  • Left turn signal on Taylor Street at Ellis Street
  • Left turn restriction on Taylor Street at Eddy Street

Construction of these safety treatments will primarily occur on the roadway using paint markings, signs, and signal timing. The construction duration is approximately one month. During construction, temporary tow-away zones will be established to remove parked vehicles and allow crews space to complete construction. Through traffic and pedestrian walkways on Taylor Street will be maintained at all times.

NEW: Muni Track Work at Market and 5th streets

Starting Monday, June 17 and continuing for six days or until completion, track maintenance work will take place on Market Street, between 5th and 6th streets. During construction, the F Market & Wharves rail service will operate without interruption. While Market Street remains open, vehicular traffic along 5th Street will have to make right turns, however buses are allowed to cross Market Street.

Work hours are from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. except for Sunday, June 23 when the street paving will be occurring from 2 a.m. to 2 p.m.

During construction:

  • While measures are being taken to minimize inconveniences, neighbors and local merchants can expect some noise during demolition.
  • To accommodate the construction, the southbound 27 Bryant bus stop north of Market Street at 5th Street (Cyril Magnin Street) will be temporarily relocated to south of Market Street. The bus stop will be used as staging area during construction.
  • The island stops at Market Street and 5th Street will serve the F Market & Wharves streetcars only. Buses traveling to east and west will pick up and offload passengers at curbside next to the island stop at this location.
  • Due to lane closures, slow traffic should be expected. All travelers, especially drivers, are encouraged to leave extra time and move carefully through the area.

ONGOING: UCSF Mission Bay Arena Platform Project

In anticipation of the new Golden State Warriors’ arena, the SFMTA is constructing a new 320-foot center platform along 3rd Street between South and 16th streets. The existing platform has been demolished. The new track alignment will include one single and one double crossover to facilitate the movement of vehicles as operations requires. Other associated work includes modification of the overhead contact system, and both above and below ground utility relocation work. Construction will require different phases of work that will necessitate separate transit service plans. For more information visit

Work will continue on the platform and surrounding streets through June, with some street closures anticipated in the coming weeks to allow for road repaving.

ONGOING: Construction of Mission Bay Loop

The SFMTA has resumed construction on 18th, 19th and Illinois streets, the project is expected to be completed in summer 2019. 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. 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.

A partial street closure is currently in effect in order to accommodate duct bank work on Illinois Street between 18th and 19th streets through summer of 2019. Outer traffic lanes traveling both north and south on Illinois Street will remain open for through traffic. Immediately following the duct bank work, the track work will begin.

Local access to properties along the project site will be maintained. For project details or to sign up to receive project updates, visit:
