Share this:
Service Affected
Neighborhoods Affected
Details of Work Performed:
  • Staging area demobilized to fully open Lower Great Highway: To minimize the inconvenience for the neighbors and drivers, 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 will clean up and demobilize the next block between Taraval and Ulloa streets. On Friday, June 11, 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: As we are wrapping up the streetscape and landscaping work on Taraval Street, the L bus is now serving 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 station. As the L bus is not serving Forest Hill Station anymore, customers can transfer to 44 O’Shaughnessy to access that station.
  • Streetscape and landscape work is ongoing with minimum impact until later this summer on Taraval*:
  • Cleaning up and reorganizing the staging area is planned for:
    • June 1-10 on Lower Great Highway between Ulloa and Taraval streets
  • Running drainage tests and planting trees are planned for:
    • June 1-4 between Sunset Blvd. and 46th Ave. on both sides of the street
