Chestnut Street Renovation

Project Update
Construction began on this project in late May 2017.
Crews are currently working on installing new curb ramps and bus pads at several intersections along Chestnut Street. The curb ramp work will typically take 3-4 weeks to complete at each intersection barring any weather delays, utility conflicts and/or unforeseen field conditions.
The bus pads are located at bus stops along Chestnut Street. The contractor will saw-cut and remove the existing roadway at the bus stop location. Crews will then build a rebar mat inside the pit. Once the rebar work is complete, crews will pour new concrete at the bus pad. We’ll need to wait several days for the concrete to cure before we could allow traffic on to it. Driveways directly in front of the bus stop will not have access for several days while the work is completed. We apologize for the inconvenience. 
Upcoming Overnight Work
Starting August 13, 2017, the contractor will begin performing overnight work at the Fillmore and Chestnut Street intersection. The work will be low-impact overnight work and will include Muni Overhead Contact System (OCS) pole installation and Muni wire replacement, relocation and/or re-adjustment. The work will be performed overnight to ensure the safety of workers near the Muni wires and to minimize any disruptions to Muni service. 
The overnight work hours will typically be Sunday night to Friday morning from 10 PM to 4 AM (overnight OCS work may continue until 7 AM).
We apologize in advance for any inconvenience caused by the overnight work.
Project Description
San Francisco Public Works has contracted Bauman Landscape and Construction, Inc., to complete work on the Chestnut Street Pavement Renovation and Muni Forward Project. The work to be performed will be on Chestnut Street between Lyon Street and Van Ness Avenue and also on Fillmore Street near the Chestnut Street intersection. The scope of work will include; curb ramps and transit bulbs, bus pads, catch-basin relocation, some sewer lateral replacement, Auxiliary Water Supply System work (AWSS), Muni Overhead Contact System (OCS) work, traffic signal work, street base repairs and repaving.
The overall project is anticipated to take 18 months to complete. However, due to the scope of work and span of the project, it may be weeks or months before we begin construction on a block.
Chestnut Street, between Divisadero and Pierce streets, will not be repaved curb-to-curb as part of this project. Those blocks are in good condition however we'll still need to perform localized base/paving repairs. These blocks will include some of the aforementioned work. Also, Chestnut Street between Franklin St. and Gough St. will not be repaved as part of this project. That block was repaved a few years ago and is in good condition. 
Project Limits
The project limits are Chestnut Street from Lyon Street to Van Ness Avenue.
