Major Inner Sunset Street Construction Project Begins This Summer

After years of collaboration between city agencies and community partners, the Inner Sunset Streetscape Improvement Project is ready to start. The two-year construction, scheduled to begin in late July or early August 2017, will improve the N Judah service, beautify your neighborhoods and make your streets more livable, vibrant and sustainable.

The work under this contract consists of sewer work, landscape improvements, electrical work, water line replacement, and street paving along Irving Street, from Arguello Boulevard to 19th Avenue, 9th Avenue from Irving Street to Judah Street, and 10th Avenue from Irving Street to Judah Street.

A summary of the landscape architectural scope planned for the project:

  • Sewer repair and replacement on Irving Street from Arguello Boulevard to 11th Avenue and 15th to 18th avenues, as well as 10th Avenue between Irving and Judah streets

  • Water line replacement on Irving Street from Arguello Boulevard to 12th Avenue and 17th to 19th avenues, as well as 11th Avenue from Irving to Judah streets, and 12th Avenue from Lincoln Way to Judah Street

  • Auxiliary Water Supply System (AWSS) replacement on Irving Street from 7th to 19th avenues

  • Traffic Signal upgrades on Irving Street at the 5th and 8th avenue intersections

  • Department of Technology fiber optic installation on Irving Street from 9th to 19th avenues

  • Muni Forward transit bulbouts on Irving Street at 5th, 6th, and 8th avenues, as well as on 9th Avenue between Irving and Judah streets. Pedestrian bulbouts at the NW corner of 7th Avenue and Irving Street, and the SE corner of 9th Avenue and Irving Street.

  • Road repaving and curb ramp upgrades on Irving Street from Arguello Boulevard to 19th Avenue, and 9th and 10th avenues from Irving to Judah streets

  • Streetscape improvements at the existing transit bulb-outs in Cole Valley at the intersections of Carl and Cole streets, and Carl and Stanyan streets.

The project is focused on improving the quality of life of Inner Sunset and Cole Valley neighborhoods by upgrading existing infrastructure. Multiple improvements are incorporated into the project in order to avoid further disruptions and service shutdowns. Construction impacts will be kept to a minimum, however neighborhoods will experience short-term inconveniences:

  • Bus substitution for the N Judah Line on four weekends and during a 10-day shutdown

  • Temporary relocation of bus stops, street parking removal, and traffic lane and sidewalk closures.

  • Noise during excavation

We will continue to update the community as construction proceeds using website, social media, leafleting and other media channels.
