The beleaguered construction project on Haight between Ashbury and Masonic is still suspended, after last week's duo of gas leaks shut it down. This is the second time the project has been put on hold; it also underwent a stoppage in September after previous gas leaks. 

According to a recent email from Alex Murillo, SF Public Works' public affairs officer, the work continues to be on hold while DPW seeks legal counsel and discusses options on how to proceed safely on the project. 

In the meantime, SFPW is working to address complaints about the noisy metal plates that have been installed to cover holes near the Haight & Ashbury intersection. Ghilotti Bros., the contractor on the project, has been assigned to backfill the holes, compact the dirt, and remove the steel plates. Work will begin on Monday, and should take 1-2 days.

SFPW hopes to resume work soon, and it remains to be seen whether the contractor and subcontractor will be fired, a move that was called for by the office of District 5 Supervisor London Breed. We've reached out to Breed's office and will update with more information.
