The South Van Ness Avenue at Mission Street intersection is closed to all traffic through Monday, August 9, 6 a.m. as we replace the roadway as part of the Van Ness Improvement Project. See detailed reroute and trip planning information.

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, bus stops along Van Ness Avenue and its side streets need to be relocated to perform construction for the Van Ness Improvement Project. Signage directs riders to temporary stops.

Parking is currently not available on Van Ness Avenue due to construction. Drivers can find parking in private lots or on side streets. Please do not park on sidewalks or in live traffic lanes. This is dangerous and may result in citations.

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

The following Van Ness Improvement Project construction forecast is subject to change. For more project details, please visit SFMTA.com/VanNess. In the next two weeks crews are scheduled to work on traffic improvements, overhead power installations, traffic signal wiring & hardware installation, light pole setting and related work at the following locations.
