To compensate a day lost, we are adding Saturday, March 20 to the paving schedule. Weather permitting, the grinding and paving will proceed as follows:

To accommodate the paving and street repair work, the L Taraval bus will be rerouted onto Ulloa Street in both directions between 35th and 46th avenues.  The bus reroute was effective on March 8 due to the street base repair work that had to be done prior repaving.

What to Expect:

Heavy vibrations from the shoring and sheet piling work is expected for open trench 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.

For track replacement work, traffic will be detoured at the intersections of 43rd and 42th Avenue at all times of the day until track replacement work along these segments are complete. During active construction hours, parking on both sides of the blocks will be temporarily restricted to give the crew the safety clearance they need to demo and replace the aged tracks in the center of the road and allow eastbound/westbound vehicular traffic. Parking will be returned at the end of each work day along the impacted blocks.
