In the swirl around Muni’s service cuts, we neglected to remind you that The MTA’s resuming its N Judah track work this weekend, which means detours and delays for those attempting to move around the Outer Sunset. The good news: this is supposed to be the last weekend, that is, if Muni doesn’t have any problems getting hard. From the MTA:

This weekend, 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.

This weekend, the closures will be southbound 19th Avenue and northbound Sunset Boulevard. Additionally, one lane on northbound 19th Avenue and one lane on southbound Sunset Boulevard will be closed for pavement work. Slow traffic is expected in the area. Motorists are advised to use alternate routes when possible.

Traffic Detour/Construction Schedule:
7 p.m., Friday, Dec. 4 – 5 a.m., Monday, Dec. 7

Muni Bus Shuttle Schedule:
8 p.m., Friday – 1 a.m., Saturday
6 a.m., Saturday – 1 a.m., Sunday
