Geary Rapid Project Construction Forecast: January 4 - 17, 2020

As part of the Geary Rapid Project, work to replace aging water and sewer lines on Geary Boulevard, in coordination with San Francisco Public Utilities Commission, is resuming. Work coordinated with Public Works to replace water mains on Geary Street east of Van Ness Avenue is also resuming.

The following two-week construction forecast is subject to change due to weather delays or unexpected field conditions.

Masonic Avenue – Gough Street
Mondays through Fridays between 8:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.:

  • Concrete roadway base work and spot sidewalk repair work is planned for the weeks of January 6 and January 13 on Geary Boulevard between Scott and Fillmore streets. Roadway traffic striping will be restored afterwards.
  • Water main installation is planned for the weeks of January 6 and January 13 on eastbound Geary Boulevard between Webster and Laguna streets.

Van Ness Avenue – Hyde Street
Mondays through Fridays between 7:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.:

  • Water main installation, connection and testing is planned for the weeks of January 6 and January 13 on Geary Street between Van Ness Avenue and Hyde Street.
    • During active water work, the outbound 38/inbound 19 bus stop on Geary at Larkin will be temporarily relocated west towards Polk Street. Look for “Board Here” signs nearby.
    • Water service to some properties may be briefly shut off while SFPUC connects to the new water main. SFPUC will notify properties in advance of any service interruption. To minimize disruption, work is sometimes conducted at night.
  • Work to install pedestrian bulb-outs (sidewalk extensions to improve safety for people walking) and curb ramps is planned for the week of January 13 at the intersection of O'Farrell and Larkin streets.

Some parking will be temporarily restricted in construction zones and traffic lanes will be modified during active work.
