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. Now that Verizon work is complete, final roadway repaving is scheduled from Monday, October 17 through Saturday, October 29.  Work hours are typically 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

The following blocks are planned to be repaved October 17 - October 29:

  • Along Geary Street between Van Ness and Kearny streets, 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.

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. 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 reinstallation of the red transit lanes.
