The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency will begin track improvement work on the N Judah light rail line today at the intersections of Judah Street and 19th Avenue and Judah Street and Sunset Boulevard. The work will continue over two additional weekends and require the use of Muni bus shuttles on the N Judah Line from Duboce and Church to La Playa and the diversion of traffic off of Judah Street, 19th Avenue and Sunset Boulevard.

On the weekends of Nov. 13, 20 and Dec. 4, regular N Judah light rail service will end at Church and Duboce streets. From there, Muni bus shuttles will substitute for rail service to deliver Muni customers to the end of the line at Ocean Beach/La Playa. Customers can get on and off the shuttle bus at all regular N Line stops except those at 19th Avenue and Sunset Boulevard.

During construction hours, Judah Street will be closed to through traffic in both directions at 19th Avenue and Sunset Boulevard. Detour signs will guide drivers to alternate routes. Track work requires one direction to be closed on 19th Avenue and Sunset Boulevard at Judah Street. The closures on 19th Avenue and Sunset Boulevard will be coordinated, i.e. when the northbound lanes of 19th Avenue are closed, the northbound direction of Sunset will be opened and vice versa. The closures will start with southbound 19th Avenue and northbound Sunset Boulevard this weekend. Police officers will be on site detouring traffic onto parallel streets during the construction. Slow traffic is expected in the area. Motorists are advised to use alternate routes when possible.
