N and J Line Rail 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.
