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. 

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

Steiner Street – Van Ness Avenue  

Mondays through Fridays between 8:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.:
