Repairs to start on Muni tracks in Twin Peaks tunnel

Officials from the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency have announced that they will begin maintenance repairs to tracks in the Twin Peaks Tunnel on Wednesday.

A 65-day accelerated schedule has been made to ensure that repairs to the track bed are made quickly, according to the agency. Repair work will be done Monday night through Friday night. The tunnel will be closed between 9 p.m. and 4 a.m. for crews to repair the track bed and install a new overhead wire system.

During the maintenance, Muni shuttle buses will operate between the West Portal and Van Ness stations.

Duringthe closures the West Portal Station will be upgraded as well, according to the agency. That station will receive new paint and landscaping, as well as a cleaning from top to bottom.

“I want to thank the residents, merchants and our customers for their patience and understanding. Just as roads need to be repaired and patched from the wear and tear of traffic, so too do the track ways on which Muni trains operate,” SFMTA Executive Director Nathaniel Ford Sr. said in a statement.
