Masonic Avenue Streetscape Improvement Project

Updated: February 24, 2017
 
Sewer Work
Our contractor has completed installation of the new sewer main and laterals (connections between the mainline and sidewalk) on Masonic between Fell and Turk streets. 
 
Crews continue sewer main replacement work on Masonic between Geary and Anza streets. Once the mainline work is complete on the block, crews will proceed with sewer main replacement on Masonic between Anza and Turk streets.
 
Once the mainline work is complete between Geary and Turk, city engineers will review video of the sewer laterals to determine which ones need to be replaced. The laterals are replaced on an as-needed basis. 
 
Water Work
The contractor continues excavating some of the water main connections holes along Masonic Avenue between Fell and Fulton in advance of tie-in (connection of mainline to water source) and change-over work (connection of home/businesses to new water main). When the San Francisco Water Department (SFWD) makes final water service connections 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. 

Meanwhile, the contractor continues installing new water mains along Masonic between Fulton and Turk.
 
Electrical Work
The contractor will soon begin installing pole foundations and electrical conduits for new street lighting, starting near Fell Street. This phase of work will commence within the next few weeks. 
 
Weekend Work
Crews will continue to work on Saturdays for the foreseeable future.
