Geary Rapid Project Construction Forecast: October 19, 2019 - November 1, 2019
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

October 25: O'Farrell and Larkin bus stop relocated
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.
