This may not come as a complete shock to regular Muni riders, but the agency is behind schedule.
This time, it’s not with an N-Judah that never seems to come. Rather, it’s with their drilling schedule for the much-anticipated Central Subway.
The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency began drilling along certain streets as part of geotechnical investigations needed for the final design of the Central Subway, which will when built, extend the Third Street Light Rail under SoMa, Market Street, Union Square and Chinatown.
Drilling began last week in front of Neiman Marcus at Stockton and Geary streets, and on Fourth Street between Howard and Folsom streets.
Drilling was supposed to continue Monday at Stockton and Clay in Chinatown, but instead will occur there on Thursday and Friday.
Next week, drilling will occur on Stockton and O’Farrell, in front of Macy’s, and on Stockton and Washington streets.
Beginning May 24, in what promises to be lots of fun for traffic on Market, drilling will happen at Stockton and Market by the closed Virgin Megastore. The drilling will finish up that week on Folsom near Fourth streets.
