Muni’s J-line project tweaks travel routes

Auto traffic will be diverted and transit lines will be affected by construction work on Muni’s J-Church line beginning Friday night, the first of three weekend street closures planned for the $1 million project.

The construction at the intersection of Church and 30th streets will start at 7 p.m. Friday and is planned to continue through 4 a.m. Tuesday, according to the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency.

This weekend’s work will be one day longer than the following two weekends because of the Columbus Day holiday Monday.

For this weekend, the J-Church line will be replaced by a bus shuttle between the Balboa Park station and the intersection of Church and Day streets.

On the following two weekends, the J-Church will be back in service.

For all three weekends, automobile traffic will be diverted off Church Street between 29th and 30th streets.

Muni’s rail infrastructure on the J-Church line is more than 30 years old and in need of repair. Similar rehabilitation efforts have been completed on the N-Judah and the L-Taraval lines.

The J-Church carries 16,695 passengers each day.
