Heads-up if you’re traveling on Lombard Street in January. San Francisco Public Works’ Lombard Street Vision Zero Project continues this month, with several things happening throughout January.
By the time you read this, construction will be underway on sewer main installation on the north side of Lombard from Scott Street to Divisadero Street; on Jan. 7, water main installation will begin on the north side of Lombard from Fillmore to Webster Streets.
Electrical work and traffic signal upgrades at the intersections on Richardson Avenue will occur from Jan. 3–7 at Lombard Street, Jan. 10–14 at Chestnut Street, and Jan. 17–21 at Francisco Street.
The Lombard project is scheduled to be completed by June 2020. One project that won’t be completed until sometime in 2021 is the Van Ness Improvement Project, which will give the city its first bus rapid transit corridor. Its weekly construction updates weren’t ready for January at press time. For the latest, check sfmta.com/projects/ van-ness-improvement-project.
