ONGOING WORK: M Ocean View Line Rail Rehabilitation Project
As an ongoing effort to keep Muni’s infrastructure in a state of good repair, SFMTA is replacing the aging tracks on the M Ocean View line on San Jose Avenue between Geneva and Niagara avenues.

Phase five of the re-railing construction project has begun and is estimated to be complete by September 2, 2014.

Construction work hours are from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday and from 9 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., Saturday and Sunday.

During construction, the M Ocean View line will operate with regular Muni buses between stops at Broad Street and Plymouth Avenue and at San Jose and Geneva avenues. These buses will serve the same rail stops. Regular train service will operate between the Broad Street/Plymouth Avenue and Embarcadero stations.

ONGOING WORK: Muni Forward: Rapid Network Improvements on Market Street
The installation of new, red transit-only lanes on Market Street will continue. The durable, new red transit-only lanes consist of a red thermoplastic bonded to the existing lanes and will run between 5th and 12th streets. The red carpet treatment makes the dedicated transit-only lanes more visible to motorists to ensure the lanes are kept clear for Muni and taxis. The Market Street red carpet lane will be similar to the ones already installed on Church, 3rd, Geary and O’Farrell streets.

The installation of red lane treatment will be conducted over Friday and Saturday nights through November.

This weekend’s red lane installation will require the following partial street closure from 10:30 p.m., Friday to 5 a.m., Saturday and from 10:30 p.m., Saturday to 5 a.m., Sunday:
Eastbound transit-only (track) lane of Market Street between Jones and 8th streets

All traffic will be diverted to the curb lane during the installation work. Cross traffic will be allowed at all intersections.

All eastbound Muni buses will operate on the curb lane in the construction area and use existing curb lane bus stops.

The F Market and Wharves Line will operate through the installation area.

UPDATE: Sewer Restoration Work
Crews from Public Utilities Commission and San Francisco Public Works will continue the installation work of a new sewer main pipeline on Spear Street between Market and Mission streets. This construction project is anticipated to last until spring of 2015.

Spear Street between Market and Mission streets will be closed during the construction period.

During the street closure, no street parking will be allowed, sidewalk will remain open for pedestrian traffic and local access will be allowed.

From midnight, Friday through 4 a.m., Monday, the intersection of Spear and Mission streets will be close to all traffic due to the installation work.
