Wiggle Neighborhood Green Corridor


Week of January 22, 2018

Project Update: 
Our contractor continues remaining unit paver work along Page, Pierce, and Waller streets. We anticipate the remaining unit paver work should be complete within the next 2 weeks.
 
In the meantime, the paving contractor is scheduled to commence grinding and paving operations on the project. 
 
We anticipate that during the grinding phase (removal of existing asphalt from roadway), driveway access will be available however minor 5-10 minute delays should be expected if crews are working on your block. Please allow extra travel time. 
 
During the paving phase, driveway access may not be available for approximately one hour. The contractor will apply a tack coat (liquid asphalt) to the roadway in advance of the hot asphalt. The tack coat promotes bonding between the concrete street base and the hot asphalt. Once the hot asphalt has been applied, crews will need to allow it to cool-down before we allow traffic on to it. During this time, driveway access will not be possible. We apologize for the inconvenience. 
 
The Grinding and Paving schedule will be as follows: 
 
Waller Street (Steiner and Pierce): The contractor is scheduled to grind this block on Thursday 1/25 and will repave it on Friday 1/26. 
 
Pierce Street (Waller to Haight) and also Page Street (Pierce to Scott): The contractor is scheduled to grind these blocks on Monday 1/29 and will repave them on Tuesday 1/30, and if needed, Wednesday 2/1. 
 
Once the paving work is complete on a block, crews may return a few days later to adjust sewer and water castings flush with the road. This phase of work may require the contractor jack-hammer, adjust, and pave around the newly adjusted casting. This phase of work is typical during paving operations. 
 
*** Please note, the grinding and paving schedule is subject to change due to inclement weather, equipment breakdown and unforeseen field conditions. ***
 
 This Wiggle project is expected to wrap-up in approximately 3 weeks barring any significant rain delays. We thank you for your continued patience during construction. 
 

Project Information
San Francisco Public Works is partnering with the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission and San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency to improve stormwater management and walking and biking conditions to the Lower Haight and Alamo Square neighborhoods. The project include curb ramp upgrades, bioretention area landscape installations, asphalt paving, permeable unit paver installations and drainage work. 

The goal for the Wiggle Neighborhood Green Corridor is to create a route that is comfortable for all who walk, bike and live along the wiggle. Through bulb-outs, raised crosswalks and improved left turns for bicyclists, the completed project will ensure that pedestrians feel safe crossing the street, minimize congestion from motor vehicles and encourage slow, safe speeds from all roadway users. The project is funded by the 2011 Road Repaving and Street Safety Bond, the Proposition K Gas Tax and the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission Wastewater Bonds.
