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.

  • Connection and testing of new water main pipes is planned for the weeks of October 14 and October 21 between Lyon and Divisadero 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 pavement roadway base work is planned for the weeks of October 14 and October 21 on eastbound Geary Boulevard between Scott and Steiner streets. During active roadway work, the inbound 38 bus stop at Scott will be temporarily relocated east. Look for “Board Here” signs nearby.

Beginning Friday, October 25 the inbound 38 Geary bus stop at O'Farrell and Larkin streets will be permanently relocated to the east side of the intersection.

By moving bus stops to the farside of intersections, buses can take advantage of transit signal priority, which makes them more likely to catch a green light. At this intersection, the sidewalk will also be extended at some corners to improve safety for people walking.


The following 38/38R bus stops are planned to be temporarily relocated. These changes are part of work that is unrelated to the Geary Rapid Project.

  • Mondays - Saturdays, August 26 - November 26, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.:
    The inbound 38/38R Geary bus stop on O’Farrell Street at Powell Street will be temporarily relocated to the other side of the intersection during utility excavation work.
  • Mondays - Sundays, October 1 - October 31, all day:
    The inbound 38/38R Geary bus stop on O'Farrell Street at Van Ness Avenue will be temporarily relocated west towards Franklin Street while work related to the Van Ness Improvement Project is performed.
