Community group set to receive planning update on Central Subway Project

Planning officials will give a progress update Thursday on the Central Subway project, The City’s ambitious undertaking to extend train service out to North Beach and possibly beyond.

The project’s Community Advisory Group, made up of local residents, professional planners, and merchants, will hear from officials with the Municipal Transportation Agency to get information about the proposed subway’s affect on utility services and real estate. The $1.58 billion project, projected to be up and running by 2018, could carry as many at 100,000 daily passengers when fully completed.

The meeting, which is open to the public, will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday at the Central Subway’s project headquarters at 821 Howard Street.
