UPDATE 10/30/2018: Previsouly scheduled work for Novebmer 2-4 has been postponed. Regular KLM Train service is planned for that weekend.

Weekend Overnight Closures Planned for November

During two weekends in November and potentially in December, there will be temporary overnight closures to the Twin Peaks Tunnel including West Portal and Forest Hill stations. These closures are similar to those on previous weekends and only in effect when ridership is low late at night and early in the morning. Bus shuttles will be provided for the KLM lines and will run while additional work is done. Neighbors should expect minimal disruptions as most activity will be inside the tunnel.

Crews plan to use this time to replace and upgrade 33 fire suppression valves, repair superficial cracks and finish replacing the fiber optic cables that aid citywide emergency communications.

The closures and bus substitutions will be on Friday and Saturday nights during the weekends of November 9-11 and 16-18.

Weekend Overnight Details:

  • West Portal and Forest Hill stations close at approximately 11pm on Friday and reopen on Saturday at 8am.
  • West Portal and Forest Hill stations close at approximately 11pm on Saturday and reopen on Sunday at 8am.
  • Buses will operate K, L and M routes between Embarcadero and each line's terminal destination. Board where you see a Half Moon sign. Buses will run every 20 minutes until OWL services starts.
  • OWL and Sunday service will not be affected by these closures.

Customers can board all buses at Muni Shuttle route stops, designated with a "Muni Metro Shuttle" yellow half-moon sign.

More information on each weekend's activities will be shared as we get closer to the dates. Thanks for your patience and understanding as we finish the important upgrades to the Twin Peaks Tunnel
