San Francisco- The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA), which manages transportation in the city, including the Municipal Railway (Muni), today reminds customers, San Francisco residents and visitors of the continuation of track improvement work on the Muni Metro system, starting Friday. Construction for the Church & Duboce Track and Street Improvement Project and the Carl Street Rail Replacement Project will require bus substitution on the N Judah Line, disruption to the J Church Line and traffic detours the weekend of Nov. 3. These projects are essential to keeping Muni in a state of good repair and will provide pedestrian and street improvements.
The construction hours will be from 8 p.m., Friday to 5 a.m., Monday. Muni service adjustments and traffic detours will need to start an hour earlier at 7 p.m. on Friday and will continue through construction hours. As with the previous construction weekends for these projects, which began in February, the construction dates have been coordinated between both the Church & Duboce and Carl Street projects to minimize inconvenience to residents, businesses, Muni customers, motorists and bicyclists.
During construction the N Line will be shut down with substitute service provided by bus from Ocean Beach to Church Street. No N Line or J Line service will operate in the Metro subway; however, S Shuttles will provide supplemental rail service between West Portal Station and Caltrain Station at 4th and King streets. The J Church Line will operate between the Balboa Park Station and the Church and Market streets. J Line customers will need to transfer between the Church Street Metro Station and the Church Street stop at Market and 15th streets.
