L Taraval Improvement Project

Segment B Update – March 25 - April 6, 2024

Work to install new rails, boarding islands, boarding ramps and curb ramps continues throughout the corridor. The last remaining area of track installation work between 33rd and Sunset Blvd is in progress. Streetbase work has resumed in multiple areas. During street base work, the block will be closed between 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. for cement pouring and curing on one side of the street at a time. Area residents and merchants will receive notifications with details. We are working with the contractor to ensure that parking is released back to the public when work isn’t necessary for construction.

General construction hours are Monday to Friday between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Construction schedules are subject to change. “No Parking” signs will be posted in construction and staging areas. Construction teams may be excavating and jackhammering pavement, which may cause vibrations. Dust control and housekeeping measures are in place at active construction and staging locations.

Construction work is scheduled to be performed – March 25 - April 6, 2024
