As part of the Cable Car Gearbox Rehabilitation Project, the Hyde gearbox is being refurbished to keep the world-famous cable cars operating, which require a systemwide shutdown.

The shutdown will begin at 5:30 a.m., Friday, September 13, continuing during regular service hours until end of service on Sunday, September 22. Regular cable car service is expected to resume on Monday, September 23. Bus shuttles will serve all cable car stops following the Powell-Hyde, Powell-Mason and California cable car lines, picking passengers at curbside cable car stops.

Bus shuttles will not stop at cable car terminals, but at bus stops conveniently located nearby:

  • California and Drumm Turntable: Drumm and California streets in front of Hyatt Hotel
  • California and Van Ness Terminal: California Street and Van Ness Avenue next to the island stop
  • Powell and Market Turntable: Northeast of Ellis and Powell streets
  • Taylor and Bay Terminal: Taylor Street, west side, between Francisco and Columbus/Chestnut streets

Regular bus fare of $3 will apply on bus shuttles:

  • $3 for adults (age 19-64)
  • $1.50 for seniors (ages 65 and older), youth (5-18)
  • $1.50 for people with disabilities
  • All single ride fares paid for by cash or Clipper Card will receive the regular 2-hour transfer

UPDATE: Townsend Corridor Improvement Project

All parking and passenger loading have been removed on Townsend Street between 4th and 5th streets as construction begins on the Townsend Corridor Improvement Project. Temporary passenger loading zones for private cars, ride hail, paratransit, private shuttles and other vehicles are now located on both sides of Townsend Street mid-block between 3rd and 4th streets. Current construction activity is centered on Townsend Street at the intersection of 5th Street with work on the mid-block also taking place between 4th and 5th streets.

Customers should follow signs posted in and around Caltrain Station for new Muni stop locations for the following lines:

ONGOING: L Taraval Improvement Project

Construction for the L Taraval Improvement Project has started to realize permanent and comprehensive safety components, along with repair and rehabilitation of aging sewer and water lines, worn rails, overhead wires, and roadways.

The project construction work is divided into two segments and overlaps in construction timeline:

  • Segment A focuses on the streets from San Francisco Zoo to Sunset Boulevard
  • Segment B will continue from Sunset Boulevard to West Portal
  • Planned for Spring 2020, train services will temporarily be substituted with bus shuttles during construction
  • The duration of the project is approximately three years

Since Thursday, August 15, traffic pattern on lower Great Highway between Ulloa and Santiago streets has been changed. Northbound travel lane on lower Great Highway has been rerouted to 48th Avenue for two blocks between Ulloa and Santiago streets. Southbound travel lane will continue on lower Great Highway as usual. This will be in effect until project completion in 2022.

Monday, September 9 to Friday, September 27: Construction crew will be performing sewer main replacement work on the northside of Taraval Street between 46th and 44th avenues. Work hours are from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Some parking spaces will be temporarily restricted in the construction zones and traffic lanes will be modified in the northbound lane during active work.

For project details, visit sfmta.com/projects/LTaravalProject.

ONGOING: Third Street Bridge Rehabilitation Project

Nighttime construction work is taking place between the hours of 8 p.m. and 7 a.m. This construction work is anticipated to continue nightly, Monday through Saturday, through 7 a.m., Friday October 4.

Since Sunday, July 7, crews have begun phase two of the rehabilitation work. Phase two construction work involves travel lane shifts and other adjustments to the roadway and work area. Vehicle and bicycle access via travel lanes across the bridge continue to be available in each direction, northbound and southbound (except during periods of full temporary bridge closures when the pending scope of work restricts access across the bridge for all vehicle, bicycle and pedestrian traffic). Pedestrian access is available via the sidewalk along the eastern side of the bridge. People on bike may also choose to walk their bicycle along the pedestrian sidewalk as an alternative to riding across the bridge via the travel lane. Pedestrian access via the sidewalk along the western side of the bridge may be unavailable during different phases of upcoming work.

The Third Street Bridge will be closed to all vehicle, bicycle and pedestrian traffic.

4th Street Bridge is open and access across the bridge is generally available throughout the Third Street Bridge closure. Please note that during peak commute hours (Monday through Friday, 7 to 10 a.m. and 3 to 7 p.m.), and at the discretion of parking control officers and SFPD, access may be temporarily restricted to clear congested traffic through the area and to allow trains through. Vehicles will be redirected to alternative detour routes.

Construction scheduling is subject to change due to rain or other weather delays, equipment breakdown, and/or unforeseen field conditions. Additional periods of short closures may be possible in September and October 2019, if necessary, to complete remaining rehabilitation work. Information will be shared closer to that period should additional closures seem necessary and details are finalized. Updates will be posted to the project webpage. For details about the project, the latest construction updates and suggested detour routes for pedestrians, bicyclists and vehicles, visit: www.sfpublicworks.org/thirdstreetbridge.

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: https://www.sfmta.com/missionbayloop.
