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.

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.

Project Update:

Paint work will be conducted from 11 p.m., Friday to 5 a.m., Saturday and from 11 p.m., Saturday to 5 a.m., Sunday between Jones and 10th street in the eastbound direction.
