As part of the Geary Rapid Project, work to replace aging water lines, in coordination with San Francisco Public Utilities Commission, continues. Surface transportation improvements, including upgraded traffic signals and streetlights, sidewalk extensions at bus stops and intersection corners, improved median refuges and roadway repaving, are also underway and are being managed by San Francisco Public Works. 

Geary Rapid Project construction is currently scheduled to continue during the shelter in place order, with crews observing social distancing requirements and a safe working environment. The following two-week construction forecast is subject to change due to weather delays or unexpected field conditions.

Stanyan Street – Van Ness Avenue
Mondays through Fridays between 8:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.:

  • Concrete roadway base work is planned for the weeks of January 4 and January 11 on westbound Geary Boulevard from Spruce to Cook streets, and on Geary Street and Starr King Way/O’Farrell Street from Gough to Van Ness streets.
  • Traffic signal and streetlight work are planned for the weeks of January 4 and January 11 at the intersections of Commonwealth/Beaumont avenues, Laguna Street and Gough Street.
    • As part of a new traffic signal that is being installed, Commonwealth and Beaumont avenues have become right-turn-only onto Geary Boulevard. Learn more about these changes at SFMTA.com/CommonwealthSafety.
    • To improve pedestrian safety and accommodate the upcoming surface-level crosswalk, U-turns from westbound Geary at Webster Street to eastbound Geary are now prohibited. Drivers should plan alternative routes to access destinations.
