Central subway delayed by COVID-19

The long-planned and long-under-construction Central Subway has had a few more months tacked onto its schedule by pandemic-related needs for quarantining, materials delays, remote work, and safety protocols, as well as some design changes resulting from underground site conditions. “Before the pandemic, we anticipated that construction would be finished by the end of [December 2020], with customers riding trains at the start of revenue service a year later,” SFMTA reported in late 2020. “Our current projections put the completion of construction this spring and the start of service in the following spring of 2022.”
