Traffic Impacts:

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

Since Tuesday, November 10, track replacement work has begun at the intersection of 46th Avenue and Taraval Street. For the track replacement work, the intersection of 46th Avenue and Taraval Street is closed to vehicular traffic at all hours until the work is complete---approximately one month. Signage will be in place to alert drivers to detour before they approach the intersection.

For track replacement work, traffic will be detoured at the intersections of 44th, 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.
