OVERNIGHT WORK – San Jose Avenue Concrete Barrier Installation
SF Public Works and SFMTA are scheduled to begin installing concrete barriers along the expressway portion of San Jose Avenue to better delineate the traffic and bicycle lanes. The work will be performed overnight due to the large volume of traffic and to help ensure the safety of staff installing the concrete barriers. Installation work will commence on Sunday night July 30, 2017.
The typical work days/hours will Sunday night to Friday morning from 8 PM to 5 AM. Installation of the concrete barriers will take about 2 weeks to complete.
Installation of the barriers will occur along the expressway portion of San Jose Avenue in the Northbound direction between St. Mary’s Ave. and Randall St. and in the Southbound direction between Randall St. and the Wilder St. exit.
Thank you for your patience as we complete these improvements. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience.
Nighttime work crews are scheduled to lay permanent striping on southbound San Jose Avenue from Dolores to the freeway on-ramp starting June 26, according to Damon Curtis, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency engineer who has managed the project.
The week after, they will install the raised concrete barriers—called K rails—that separate the bike lane from traffic.
Finally, the week of July 11, they are scheduled to stripe the northbound side. Engineering plans show that side will also have a K rail. (Plans are linked below.)
While work happens on the northbound side, Caltrans will close the freeway off-ramp from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. and re-route traffic.

Forwarded from Calvin Gee, SFMTA:
The concept that SFMTA is proposing for the intersection is a marked crosswalk and pedestrian-activated yellow flashing beacon, with some sidewalk widening on both sides of DH Boulevard at Sussex Street.
The MTA has received the design funding for the project, and I am working with our partners at Public Works (PW) to begin the topographical survey of the area. Due to the steepness and concrete characteristics (large concrete panels) of the street, this survey will be critical for the sidewalk improvements that would accompany the crosswalk. As you probably know, this is the steepest street in this DH Blvd/Elk street vicinity.
The anticipated schedule (set by our grant funding agreement) is below:
100% Design – July 2017
Advertise, Bid, Construction Start – December 2017
Open for Use – Spring 2018
Please bear with me, as I am working to the best of my ability to keep this project on the above timeline.
