L Taraval Improvement Project Segment B Update and Forecast - January 16 - 28, 2023
The onset of the new year came with extreme weather conditions, delaying construction activities on the L Taraval Improvement Project. Construction crews monitored areas that were prone to flooding and took preventative measures to ensure the roads stayed clear. In the coming weeks, work continues on water and sewer lines, as well as on the overhead contact system (OCS) that powers the trains. OCS work is now focused on foundation work to prepare for the installation of new poles. Construction teams will be excavating and jackhammering pavement, which may cause vibrations. Materials are also being temporarily staged nearby. Dust control and housekeeping measures are in place at active construction and staging locations.
The inbound stop at Taraval and 15th has been relocated across the intersection until fall 2024.
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, and intersections may be closed to through traffic on Taraval Street.
Multiple agencies are performing infrastructure work in the area. This includes work by Public Works on 19th Avenue, Public Utilities Commission at Vicente and Wawona streets and PG&E along Taraval Street.
