Muni Advising Residents and Businesses of Long N-Judah Shutdown

SAN FRANCISCO (BCN)--Some San Francisco Municipal Railway riders will need to make  alternate travel plans for an 11-day stretch beginning later this month when  several key light-rail and bus routes will be shut down or rerouted to make  way for street and Muni improvements.
     
According to the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency,  work on the Church and Duboce Track and Street Improvement Project and the  Carl Street Rail Replacement Project will result in the multi-day shutdown of  the N-Judah between 7 p.m. on May 25 and 5 a.m. on June 4.
     
The work, which will provide new track for smoother and more  reliable Muni service, will also affect the J-Church, 22-Fillmore,  37-Corbett, 43-Masonic and N Owl routes.
     
SFMTA Director of Transportation Ed Reiskin said the work is  critically important and the two projects were coordinated to pose a minimal  inconvenience to residents, businesses, transit users, motorists and  bicyclists.
     
"There will be disruption, but we are endeavoring to make it as  painless as possible," Reiskin said. "We ask that everyone allow extra travel  time and plan ahead."
     
Buses will run in place of trains on the N-Judah line between  Ocean Beach and Van Ness Avenue, although Nx express bus service will be  unaffected.
     
The J-Church line will operate only between Balboa Park and Market  and Church streets.
     
Street and bike lane closures and detours will occur during the  construction, when parking restrictions will also be in effect.
