Masonic Avenue Streetscape Improvement Project

Project Update - August 7, 2017
Temporary Paving 
Our contractor is scheduled to perform localized grinding and paving along portions of Masonic Avenue. The City and contractor have identified areas of the roadway that are uneven and could use some attention. Although the paving work is temporary, it’ll improve drivability along Masonic Avenue until final paving is scheduled. Final paving won’t happen until 2018 since we still have several phases of work that remain. The entire project is scheduled to be complete in Spring 2018. 
Curb-ramp Work
Curb ramp work continues on Masonic Avenue between Fell and Fulton streets. This type of work will continue for the foreseeable future. 
Sewer Work
The mainline and lateral work is complete along Masonic Avenue however some catch-basin work remains.
Water Work
The contractor continues water main installation work between Ewing Terrace and Geary Blvd. When the San Francisco Water Department (SFWD) schedules final water service connection work, there may be a temporary interruption to water service. Final tie-in work is traditionally done overnight to minimize disruptions to water service. Typically, there's less demand for water overnight. Change-over connections are typically performed during daytime operations. SFWD will notify you in advance of any overnight tie-in work or interruption to water service. 
Electrical Work
The contractor has begun installing pole foundations and electrical conduits for new street lighting near Fell Street.

Project Information
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.
