Major work on St. Francis Circle planned

With the massive St. Francis Circle Project winding down, residents near the undertaking can expect some major construction work this weekend.

The $26 million project, designed to improve a notoriously confusing intersection in southwest San Francisco, is scheduled to end Sept. 4. To make sure the project gets finished on time, construction crews will begin Friday repaving portions of Sloat Boulevard and Juniper Serra Boulevard, leaving just one lane open on the busy thoroughfares. After a respite for the weekend, the repaving work will continue Monday and Tuesday.

St. Francis Boulevard will also receive repaving work on Monday, resulting in closure of the street to automobile traffic. Motorists can detour around the work by travelling on Potrola Drive and Santa Ana Way.

The 23-Montery Muni bus will be diverted around the construction from 7 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Monday and Tuesday.

Also, about 12 parking spots on the 300 block of West Portal Avenue will be off-limits on Sunday, while crews remove a temporary rail crossover.
