Overnight Paving Work
San Francisco Public Works is scheduled to repave the Market and Castro streets intersection next week. Due to the volume of vehicular traffic and pedestrians in the area, our contractor will be performing this work overnight. The work is scheduled overnight from 8pm to 6am on Wednesday (10/22) and Thursday (10/23). On Wednesday night crews will use heavy machinery to strip/remove the existing asphalt from the roadway. The work on Wednesday night is likely to be the noisiest. On Thursday night the contractor will repave the intersection.
The low-impact overnight work continues this week and will continue for another week or so. This work includes the switch-over of Muni overhead wires to the new poles. During the day crews will continue to demo the base of the old Muni poles on Castro.
Work continues at Jane Warner Plaza and at the Castro & Market intersection. Crews are working on the curb-ramps and pedestrian island. The contractor also continues installation of the brick sidewalk band in front of the Castro Theater. The brick work should be complete by the end of next week. However, we'll still be awaiting arrival of the center-piece tiles.
Crews will work this Saturday at the NE corner (Pottery Barn) of the Market & Castro intersection. The weekend work will include framing and pouring of the new corner.
On Monday crews are scheduled to begin street base repairs at the Market & Castro intersection. This work will require the contractor saw-cut sections of the intersection in order to replace the concrete street base which is located underneath the roadway. The street base work at the intersection will take 3 days to complete. This work is being completed in advance of the grinding & paving operations scheduled for Wednesday & Thursday nights.
The contractor is scheduled to begin installing the tree guards along Castro Street. Tree guard installation is scheduled to begin on Monday and should be complete next week.
Thank you for your continued patience and support of this project.
