Those traveling on the corridor are advised to stay alert and allow more travel time during construction. Polk Street, one block east of Van Ness Avenue, is a recommended alternative for people traveling by bicycle in the area.

At times, Muni bus stops along Van Ness Avenue and its side streets need to be relocated to perform construction for the Van Ness Improvement Project. You can stay up to date about bus stop changes along the project area, and the rest of the city, by visiting the SFMTA’s Temporary Stop Relocations Map. The map marks the original location of any relocated stop. When you click on the stop’s marker, you will find additional information including a description of where the temporary stop is now located and the duration of the relocation. 

Tentative schedule:

Per the City and County of San Francisco's Public Health Order, essential infrastructure projects, including the Van Ness Improvement Project, continue. The work underway on Van Ness Avenue is vital, replacing aging utilities essential for operation, including sewer and water. The SFMTA continues to monitor projects as the situation develops.

In the next two weeks crews are scheduled to work on sewer and water main installation, installing a joint-utility trench, sidewalk and roadway replacement and light pole installation.

The work listed below is scheduled for daytimes, 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Planned night work is italicized. The night shift for construction is 8:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. During this time, neighbors are advised to anticipate construction-related noise and vibrations as crews work diligently to complete necessary night work.
