This Monday, January 23rd marks the kickoff of a six-month pavement renovation, sewer replacement, and water main installation project along Eureka Street, running from 17th Street in the Castro to 23rd Street in Noe Valley.
A notice went out to residents and business owners in the neighborhood alerting them to the upcoming construction, which is expected to take place Monday through Friday from 8am-5pm and on weekends from 8am-4pm.
At this time, there are no plans for any night work to take place, but SF Public Works will alert residents in advance if such work does occur.
The project is the first of three segments in the Eureka, Grand View and Mangels Pavement Renovation, Sewer Replacement and Water Main Installation project. SF Public Works awarded the $8,598,778 project to Con-Quest Contractors, Inc. back in October, with the expectation that all three phases will be completed by March 2018.
The renovations and improvements will include roadway and pavement demolition, installation of new water and sewer services (with some temporary interruptions of water and sewer service along the way), new sidewalks, driveways, curbs and ADA ramps, and the replacement of the roadway concrete base and asphalt surface along the full width of the project.
SF Public Works spokesperson Mindy Linetzky tells Hoodline that construction crews will work on one portion at a time, but "there may be some overlap as they finish one section and start on the next area."
Locals can expect to hear loud construction noise during work hours, equipment including jackhammers, trucks, backhoes, and excavators.
Street and pedestrian traffic will be rerouted and modified due to the work, and Muni riders can expect delays and rerouting on the 33, 35 and 37 bus lines. Street parking in the area will also be unavailable during the construction.
Hoodline reached out to SFMTA spokesperson Paul Rose for more information on the construction's effect on Muni and how buses will be rerouted, but he did not respond by press time.
Update, 4:45pm: SFDPW spokesperson Mindy Linetzky tells Hoodline "the project has been delayed due to weather." While some pre-construction work may be happening she says, "the major work won’t start until late January/early February."
Residents in the area can expect to receive a notice 10 days prior to work starting along with "additional information from the contractor," says Linetzky.
Linetzky encourages anyone seeking additional updates to visit the project website.
