Masonic Avenue Streetscape Improvement Project
On Wednesday (10/11), SFWD crews will complete tie-in work near the Masonic/O'Farrell intersection. The work will occur in the northbound lanes. Water service to the City Center Plaza will be interrupted during this phase of work. The following night, on Thursday (10/12), crews will complete tie-in work near the southwest corner of the Masonic/Geary intersection.
SFWD will often schedule their tie-in/change-over work at night since that's when there's the least demand for water service. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience caused by the overnight work.
Crews continue street base repairs along Masonic Avenue. The concrete street base is located underneath the asphalt roadway. During this phase of construction, crews will saw-cut, remove the damaged/broken street base and replace it with fresh concrete. Street base repairs are key in advance of final paving and help prolong the life of the new roadway. Final paving is still several months away. During street base repairs, construction crews will funnel Masonic Avenue down to one lane in each direction between Hayes and Fulton streets. This phase of work is expected to result in delayed travel time along the busy arterial traffic route. Please consider using alternate routes.
The contractor continues work on the new center median.
Monday to Friday, 7 AM to 6 PM

The Masonic Avenue Streetscape Improvement Project, between Geary Boulevard to the north and Fell Street to the south, will provide improvements for pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and transit riders. The goal of this project is to safely and efficiently accommodate the needs of all roadway users. The proposed improvements are the result of a planning process among Public Works, the Planning Department, SFMTA and Masonic Avenue residents and businesses.
Project improvements include a new landscaped median, new cycle tracks, widened portions of sidewalk, repaving, bus bulb-outs, new street trees and sidewalk planters, new lighting in medians and pedestrian scale lighting on sidewalks and the conversion of a triangular space and road on the southwest corner of Geary Blvd. and Masonic Ave. into a small park and resident traffic only road, which includes public art.
