Release date: April 20, 2012
*** Press Release ***
The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA), which manages transportation in the city, including the Municipal Railway (Muni), today reminds customers and San Francisco residents and visitors of the continuation of track improvement work on the Muni Metro system this coming weekend. Construction for the Church & Duboce Track and Street Improvement Project and the Carl Street Rail Replacement Project will require bus shuttle substitution on the N Judah Line as well as traffic detours. The round-the-clock construction will take place from 8 p.m., Friday to 5 a.m., Monday this weekend and the weekend of May 11 to 14. A longer stretch of construction is scheduled from Friday, May 25 until Monday, June 4. Similar work and impacts will continue later this summer and fall.
During the upcoming weekend construction periods, the N Line will be shut down with substitute service provided by bus shuttles from Ocean Beach to Church Street. No N Line service will operate in the Metro subway; however, supplemental rail service will be in place between Castro Station and the Caltrain Station at 4th and King streets. Muni service adjustments and traffic detours will need to start an hour earlier at 7 p.m. each Friday and will continue through construction hours.
This weekend’s work on the Church & Duboce project will include track work on Duboce Avenue between Belcher and Fillmore streets, including demolition of the track from 8 p.m., Friday until 1 a.m., Saturday. The Carl Street project will include sewer and rail replacement work on Carl Street between Hillway Avenue and Cole Street. In addition, a track switch will be replaced on Judah Street between 37th and 38th avenues as part of the Switch Replacement Project; the related traffic and parking impacts will be in place from 9 a.m., Friday until 3 p.m., Monday.
Construction dates have been coordinated between both the Church & Duboce and Carl Street projects as well as other track repairs to minimize inconvenience to residents, businesses, Muni customers, motorists and bicyclists.
