What to Expect:

Excavation requires jackhammering of the pavement. Dust control measures will be in place to prevent dust kick up from the work.

Time of Work:
  • Monday to Friday 8:00 a.m to 5:00 p.m.; Saturday to Sunday 8:00 a.m to 5:00 p.m. Hours subject to change based on construction needs. 
Traffic Impacts:

Some parking will be temporarily restricted in construction zones and traffic lanes will be modified during active work.

Muni Impacts:

Since the Muni Metro service is being suspended due to COVID-19 pandemic, the L bus has been serving the L Taraval Line with occasional reroutes between Sunset Boulevard and 46th Avenue to accommodate construction work. Once rail service resumes, transit service on the L Taraval will remain throughout with a combination of buses and trains.

The above construction forecast is subject to change due to weather delays or unexpected field conditions.
