Utility work on the Geary Rapid Project, in coordination with San Francisco Public Utilities Commission, is officially complete! Crews connected properties’ water service to the new water main at the last remaining location at Geary and Kearny earlier this week. In total, 1.5 miles of new sewer and almost 3 miles of upgraded water mains were installed along Geary, replacing the previous 100-year-old infrastructure. 

Surface improvements managed by San Francisco Public Works are still underway, including utility trench restoration and repaving, and red transit lane treatments. 

The following two-week construction forecast is subject to change due to weather delays or unexpected field conditions. No work is planned on Monday, September 6 as crews are observing the Labor Day holiday.

Mondays through Fridays between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m.: 

  • Median work is planned for the week of August 30 on Geary Boulevard at Buchanan Street
