Street Closures

Work hours will be 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays and 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekends. During these work hours, these streets will be closed to automobile traffic for paving on the streets and Muni trackways:

  • Irving, between Arguello and 9th Ave
  • 9th Ave, between Irving and Judah

During street paving, at least one lane will remain open to vehicular traffic in each direction. All travelers, especially drivers, are encouraged to leave extra time and move carefully through the construction area.

Temporary N Judah Changes

The N Judah train will switchback--changing direction from outbound to inbound--at Carl & Hillway. For stops on Judah St, transfer to the N Judah Bus at Carl & Cole.

The N Judah train will serve the stops at Carl & Stanyan and Carl & Hillway, providing access to the UCSF Parnassus Campus, but these stops are not ADA accessible. Customers requiring ADA access to UCSF can use the 6 Haight/Parnassus or the 43 Masonic. Read below for accessible alternative routes to the UCSF campus.
