As part of the Geary Rapid Project, work to replace aging water and sewer lines on Geary Boulevard, in coordination with San Francisco Public Utilities Commission, continues. Work to replace water mains on Geary Street east of Van Ness Avenue is being coordinated with San Francisco Public Works.

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

Masonic Avenue – Gough Street
Mondays through Fridays between 8:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.:

  • Connection and testing of new water main pipes is planned for the weeks of November 18 and November 25 at the intersections of Presidio, Divisasdero, and Fillmore streets.
    • Water service to some properties may be briefly shut off while SFPUC connects to the new water main. SFPUC will directly notify properties in advance of any service interruption. To minimize disruption, work is sometimes conducted at night.
  • Concrete roadway base work is planned for the weeks of November 18 and November 25 at the intersections of Presidio, Divisadero, Fillmore streets.
    • During active roadway work, the inbound 38 bus stop at Baker/St. Joseph’s will be temporarily relocated to the other side of the intersection. Look for “Board Here” signs nearby.
  • Sewer main replacement is planned for the weeks of November 18 and November 25 between Webster and Laguna streets.
  • Installation of pull boxes in the sidewalk for fiber optic cables is planned for the weeks of November 18 and November 25 between Lyon and Gough streets

On Saturday, November 23, the eastbound Geary frontage road from Presidio Avenue to Lyon Street will be closed between 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. while crews work on concrete roadway base work.

    • 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.

Van Ness Avenue – Hyde Street

  • Water main installation, connection and testing is planned for the weeks of November 18 and November 25 on Geary Street between Van Ness and Hyde streets.
