Construction Heading Towards Phase II
Phase I of
construction is approaching completion and that means Phase II is just around the corner.Phase I work was accomplished in the old freeway parking lots just east of the existing
, which has been left mostly undisturbed.
Phase II work, which is expected to last six to seven months, calls for the closure of the ãoldä
, with traffic being routed onto the new portions of the Boulevard. Activity will then shift onto
, as it becomes the construction zone. The shift into Phase II will most likely begin from
Page St. north
to Hayes. Traffic will shift to the new portions of the Boulevard from Page to Hayes at first, but will remain on the "old"
between Marketand Page until completion of work necessary to the complete the full shift to Phase II.Some of the
center median must be removed in order for traffic to shift between Market and Page. There is also work on the Market Street F line tracks that must be accomplished, probably at the same time.
There is also a thirty day closure of
at Octavia, the first half of which will involve work in the Phase I area, with traffic still flowing on the old
Octavia Street.The second half of the closure will take place after the full shift into Phase II, at which time traffic will be shifted to portions of the new boulevard along its entire length.
traffic will continue to flow past
Haight Street, first on the existing
Octavia Street, then on portions of the new Boulevard, during the
As the project shifts into Phase II, the side streets that are closed just east of Octavia will be re-opened at those locations, but simultaneously closed just west of Octavia. Those Streets are
