Muni reopens N-Judah line through Sunset Boulevard

N-Judah commuters will be able to ride their trains through Sunset Boulevard tonight despite a construction delay that required bus bridges and detours this morning.

The City’s transportation agency closed two intersections this weekend to replace old rails for its Sunset Rail Improvement Project, but the concrete took longer than expected to dry, said Muni spokesman Judson True.

Cars had to take detours and the trains weren’t operating between 19th Avenue and the beach because of the delays at the Judah Street and Sunset Boulevard intersection.

The trains were originally supposed to start running this morning, but then Muni officials announced Sunday night that Sunset Boulevard could be closed until 5 a.m. Tuesday.

However the rails were then scheduled to open at 6 p.m. today, including the roadway for cars to pass through.

Muni did not have information about why the concrete took so long to dry, but assured it is safe.

The $2 million rail improvement project will continue to close intersections on the weekends of November 20 and December 4.
