Geary Rapid Project: Construction Forecast April 5 - April 21, 2019

Route(s) Affected
Service Affected
Weekend Traffic and Transit Advisory

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.

    Permanent traffic signal change at Geary Blvd./Laguna Street starting April 11: 

    To improve the safety of people crossing at Geary Boulevard and Laguna Street, traffic signals will be retimed beginning Thursday, April 11. Currently, northbound and southbound vehicle traffic on Laguna moves at the same time. After the change, north- and southbound traffic will be split into two separate phases so each side has its own green light, allowing vehicles turning left onto Geary to focus on yielding to people in the crosswalk. The new timing will also increase the amount of time for people to cross.
