Van Ness Avenue partly closed for marathon Sunday, M-Ocean View construction canceled

San Francisco drivers beware: The SoFi Golden Gate Half Marathon will see impacts through the northern sections of The City on Sunday, but you’ll only get snarled if you’re an early riser.

For the thousands of riders of the M-Ocean View train, note that construction on the line is canceled this weekend due to a rain forecast, leading to regular train service Nov. 4 and Nov. 5.

The marathon will start at Van Ness Avenue and Bay Street, and head up Laguna Street to Marina Boulevard, according to the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency. The marathon will then move through the Presidio to the Golden Gate Bridge, and back down through the Marina to Aquatic Park.

The race begins at 6:30 a.m. and runs until 10:30 a.m., according to the SFMTA.

From 6:30 to 8:30 a.m. Sunday, Southbound Van Ness Avenue (also part of U.S. Highway 101) will be closed from North Point to Bay Streets, and westbound Bay Street from Van Ness Avenue to Laguna Street.

Muni lines will likely see some delays, including the 28-19th Avenue, 30-Stockton, 43-Masonic, 47-Van Ness and 49-Van Ness, all of which intersect with the marathon’s route. Transit
