Track replacement means buses for N-Judah riders

It’s another weekend of shuttle surfing for N-Judah riders.

The second of three weekend closures for the $2 million project is scheduled for this weekend.

Instead of streetcars, N-Judah riders will be taking buses starting at Church Street and Duboce starting at 8 p.m. Friday.

Work on the tracks in the Sunset District last week ran into a few snags, including faulty concrete. The project team has consulted with the contractor to replace the concrete mix for all subsequent work, according to the SFMTA. All concrete poured last weekend has been tested and certified as safe for light-rail operation.

In addition to replacing and repairing aging Muni tracks and components, the project will include long-overdue enhancements to the surrounding area such as street repaving and re-striping, sidewalk improvements and upgraded water lines.

The MTA is expected to close down the tracks again on the weekend of Dec. 4.
