Masonic Avenue Streetscape Improvement Project

Project Update - Week of February 12, 2018
Curb, Sidewalk and Cycletrack Work
The contractor continues curb, sidewalk, and cycletrack work on Masonic between Turk and Anza streets. During this phase of work, driveway access may be delayed several hours if crews are working directly in front of your home. Driveway access should be restored in the evening. Please inform the work crew if you need to enter/exit your driveway so that they may create a path of travel for your vehicle. 
Landscape Work
The contractor continues landscape work on Masonic Avenue between Fell and Turk streets. Crews are scheduled to begin installing unit pavers next week between Fell and Grove streets. 
Plaza Work
On Monday, January 8, 2018, the contractor is scheduled to commence work on conversion of the triangular space and road on the southwest corner of Geary Blvd. and Masonic Ave. into a small park and resident traffic only road. The plaza work will take approximately 6 weeks to complete barring any weather delays or unforeseen field conditions. 
Final paving on Masonic is still a few months away. We could anticipate that some of the blocks may begin receiving final paving in late March or early April. More details to follow once that phase of work has been scheduled. 
*** Please Note:  The schedule is subject to change due to rain, equipment breakdown, and/or unforeseen field conditions. Please see the posted "no parking" barricades for exact parking restrictions. Parking restrictions may vary per block. ***

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.


Masonic Avenue: Proposed Plan


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.
