Underground Fuel Tank Replacement at Muni Kirkland Yard

Project Overview

To modernize the Muni system, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) will replace two underground fuel tanks in the Kirkland Yard with two new fuel storage tanks. The project, anticipated to start in March or April 2017, will last for approximately nine months. It will bring the tanks up to code, improve safety and make fueling faster and more efficient.

The work, located at northeast side of Kirkland Yard next to Beach and Stockton streets, will involve excavation and removal of the old tanks, and installation of two new tanks.  The new fueling system will store renewable diesel with added features such as double-wall tanks, a new monitoring system to detect leaks and faster more reliable dispensers. During excavation of tanks, existing soil and water, if found contaminated, will be treated on site and disposed appropriately.

The SFMTA will work with the contactor to minimize the inconveniences for Muni customers, local merchants and nearby residents, however there will be temporary service adjustments and short-term construction impacts including:

  • Partial bus substitution for the E and F lines

  • Relocation of the F stop at Beach and Stockton

  • Street parking removal on north side of North Point Street

  • Noise and dust during daytime work

  • Possible odors from excavation of contaminated soil

The work will take place Monday through Friday during daytime hours. In order to accommodate the work, sidewalk on the south side of Beach at Stockton will be temporarily closed. A detour will be provided on the other side of Beach Street for pedestrians. Traffic lanes next to the construction site may be closed as needed.   

The SFMTA will continuously update the community on traffic and service adjustments with fliers, signage, social media postings and ambassador support as construction proceeds.

Also as part of the contract, the Flynn and Scott yards will each have two underground waste tanks replaced with above ground waste tanks. Work at Flynn will take place simultaneously with Kirkland and Scott will follow afterwards.
