Service Affected
Neighborhoods Affected
Route(s) Affected
Details of Work Performed:
  • Staging area demobilized to fully open Lower Great Highway: As the streetscape and landscaping work is nearing completion on Taraval Street, we are starting to shrink the footprint of the staging area on Lower Great Highway. Following the opening of the block between Santiago and Taraval streets in May, we have been cleaning up and demobilizing the next block between Taraval and Ulloa streets. On Friday, June 25, the northbound lane of Lower Great Highway will be fully open to vehicular traffic. The SFMTA would like to thank the community for the support during the lane closure while we were making improvements to Taraval Street.
  • L Bus serves regular stops: The L bus continues to serve the regular stops between Embarcadero and the SF Zoo. Since Saturday, May 15, all subway stations have reopened for the N Judah and KT Ingleside Third train service. The L customers now have an option of transferring between L bus and KT train at West Portal. As the L bus is not serving Forest Hill Station anymore, customers can transfer to 44 O’Shaughnessy to access that station.
