What to expect during construction:
While the SF Public Works will abide by the City’s noise and vibration ordinances, neighbors should expect some noise and limited dust during this work. The project team will work to minimize disruption to normal neighborhood activity; however, there will be occasional inconveniences due to heavy equipment movement and other construction activities. To complete portions of the proposed work, a night noise permit will be required. Notification of the dates and times for this work will be provided separately.
Businesses and residents in the work zone will maintain access to their properties (including entries, driveways, garages), although there may be temporary delays.
Temporary walkways will be provided around construction work areas.
Some bus stops will be relocated temporarily and some will be relocated permanently with signs posted in all cases.
Through traffic in both directions will be maintained, but may experience temporary delays with lane closures in work zones.
Parking and loading will be affected in the work zone. Please see posted signs for exact details.
No interruption in sewer, water, or power service is expected.
