Geary Rapid Project Construction Forecast: April 27 - May 10

Friday, April 26, 2019 - 12:00pm
Route(s) Affected 

The first phase of construction as part of the Geary Rapid Project continues. Work to replace aging water and sewer lines between Masonic and Van Ness avenues is being done in coordination with San Francisco Public Utilities Commission.

The following two-week construction forecast is subject to change due to weather delays or unexpected field conditions.

Mondays through Fridays between 8:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.:

  • Water main replacement work is planned for the weeks of April 29 and May 6 on Geary Boulevard between Baker and Scott streets.
  • Some parking will be temporarily restricted on the north and south sides of Geary Boulevard in the area until water work is complete. West- and eastbound traffic lanes will be modified during active work.

Weekend work between 8:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m.:

  • The eastbound Geary frontage road from Presidio Avenue to Lyon Street will be closed Saturday, May 4 while crews work on water main replacement.
  • Eastbound traffic will be slightly detoured, and parking will be restricted on the south side of Geary Boulevard between Presidio Avenue and Lyon Street.
  • No bus stops will be affected. Inbound 38/38R Geary buses will be slightly rerouted, which will add some travel time.

Traffic signal change at Geary and Laguna:

The traffic signals at Geary Boulevard and Laguna Street were retimed on April 11 to improve the safety of people walking across Geary and to increase the time for them to cross. This safety improvement was requested by neighbors to address the primary patterns of traffic collisions within this intersection.

Our team has been monitoring this intersection since the change. We recently installed new right-turn pockets on Laguna to improve traffic flow. We are continuing to monitor the intersection and will make further adjustments as needed.
