Van Ness Improvement Project Bus Rapid Transit Is Coming to San Francisco
From Calle24 via email – and SFMTA web site.
In one week, as part of the Van Ness Improvement Project, the SFMTA will be closing the intersection at S. Van Ness Avenue and Mission Street to traffic for five days and six nights, from August 4-9, to replace the roadway.
By closing the full intersection for five days, the team can complete work in the intersection that would normally require two months of work completed one segment at a time. The goal is to minimize inconvenience for the public. The construction is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
This closure will impact people driving, taking transit and walking in SoMa, Tenderloin, Civic Center, Hayes Valley, Downtown and Inner Mission.
People who travel in the area are encouraged to “Scout Your Route” before the shutdown and plan their travel accordingly. The project website details the available detours and provides additional information for motorists. While pedestrian access will be maintained at all times, people walking should consider bypassing the area.
Muni routes 14 Mission, 14R Mission Rapid, 49 Van Ness-Mission, 90 San Bruno Owl and 91 3rd-19th Ave Owl and AC Transit Route 800 will be rerouted, and some bus stops will be relocated. Muni Metro and BART service will not be affected.
Thank you to all the residents and travelers who have remained patient through the traffic reroutes, dust and noise! We appreciate your support and are excited to welcome you on to the new BRT in early 2022. For more information Click Here.
