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

In order to minimize disruption to the community and avoid repaving the roadway twice, the Geary Rapid Project has coordinated trench restoration work with private contractor Verizon/MCI to install new underground communications conduits. Final roadway repaving has been rescheduled to Monday, November 7 through Saturday, November 19 on the following blocks:

  • Along Geary Street between Van Ness Avenue and Kearny Street, including all intersections in between.
  • On O’Farrell Street at the intersections of Larkin, Hyde, Leavenworth, Shannon and Security Pacific Plaza, as well the southside lanes between Mason and Powell streets.

Work hours are typically 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

Repaving operations are generally two work days per block: one day to grind down the existing roadway and one day to pour the new asphalt (grind and pave days may not be consecutive on a given block due to scheduling and weather considerations). Crews may also be working in the area a day before and after for preparation and cleanup as needed.

During grinding and paving work, all vehicles and structures will need to be temporarily removed from the roadway. Parking will be temporarily restricted on both sides of the street to accommodate operations and traffic. Bus stops will be temporarily relocated nearby; look for signage. There may be brief vibrations and some noise and dust. 

After roadway repaving is complete, traffic striping will be restored, including reinstalling the red transit lanes.
